Thank You!

January 17th—

We're grateful for the goodwill and great company of all who were able to join us for last night's Open House, and for each member of the 826CHI family who contributes to the unstoppable spirit of 826—"whimsy, weirdness, openness, togetherness" (as 826 co-founder Dave Eggers so eloquently put it).

Photos from the evening are forthcoming!

Open House TONIGHT!

January 16th—

This evening, from 5-7pm, all are welcome in 826CHI's new home at 1276 N Milwaukee Ave. You can catch a tour of our beautiful new space, enjoy music from "gypsy jazz" band Swang, and meet Dave Eggers—826 co-founder and internationally renowned author—in the flesh. Free and open to the public—see you soon!
