Writers Block Party Party: 8-8-08 at 8:08pm

Back in 2001, Chicago writer and Eight Forty-Eight contributor Amy Krouse Rosenthal had an idea for a show. Well, a show-within-a-show called Writers Block Party. Her idea was to host a segment that showcased local writers, performers and musicians. The show has aired on Eight Forty-Eight for 7 years. I have produced the program for several of those years and it's been quite a pleasure to witness some great artists on the show. And not only the writers, but the opportunity to work with Amy. She is such a creative person and I think this week she has outdone herself. In honor of 8.08.08, Amy is throwing a party. Come on down to Millenium Park tonight at (you guessed it) 8:08pm and participate in a public art project with Amy, Writers Block Party contributors and random visitors to the park. Amy did a video to promote the party which you can watch below.
