Story Slam: A Benefit for Farther Foundation
Where: Fitzgerald’s Nightclub
6615 Roosevelt Rd.
Berwyn, IL 60402
Who’s telling stories?
Included in our roster of wits and raconteurs are hometown (Oak Park) favorites Mike Cramer, Harlene Ellin and Eden Novak.
Mike Cramer is an award winning independent film maker, visual artist, performer of written and improv comedy…and a lawyer. Harlene Ellin is a long-time journalist, essayist, marketer, social media maven and domestic impresario.
Eden Novak started out as a bad-ass, smart-mouth kid who explored rock and roll stardom, clothing wholesaling, and horticultural therapy, which then made its natural progression to lingerie boutique owner. After rocking, rolling, jazzing, popping, country crooning (she hates to admit that!) with various bands, she found herself back on the theatrical stage with Open Door Repertory and guest appearances in theater, radio and television.
Other storytellers will include James Finn Garner, Pat Byrnes and Stephanie Douglass. Our emcee for the evening will be John Garcia of WLS ABC News.
