Join us for 4 Minutes of Literary Fame

Be a stand-up author & get your
4 Minutes of (Literary) Fame
Or just come to have a good time!

Hosted by Kym Brunner, Katie Sparks, and Cherie Colyer


1) We picked a cool pub that'll let us have a private backroom. (Kidlit + alcohol = Happy Crowd)
2) You sign up in advance to obtain your very own “4 Minutes of Fame” in the form of:
  • reading pages from your book
  • sharing your book trailer
  • showing illustrations you've drawn
  • revealing your book cover
  • something else creative you've thought of that relates to your children’s lit book,
3) Invite your friends, family, and fellow authors to join us for some good, old-fashioned book gossip and…
4) Viola! You've gotten your 4 Minutes of Literary Fame and some free exposure for you and/or your books!
WHO:   Any traditionally published, self-published, or want-to-be-published author/poet
WHAT:  A good time (Seriously, that’s all this is – FUN!)
HOW:   Sign up to be one of the stand-up authors by clicking HERE
We’re limiting this first stand-up literary event to the first 15 authors who sign up – but are planning more events to come in the future! If you don’t want to present THIS time, come on out and cheer on your fellow authors!
WHEN: MONDAY, OCTOBER 21ST at 7:00 PM (til approx. 9:00, but you can stay as late as you like….)
WHERE: TOKIO PUB ( 1900 W. Higgins, Schaumburg, IL
COST:  FREE (although we hope you buy a cocktail or three to thank Tokio Pub for allowing us heathens in…)
*We will have a table setup for the stand-up authors to display bookmarks or other giveaways, but so that others can attend without feeling pressured to buy, we ask that you do not bring your books to sell. HOWEVER, we will be giving all attendees a list of the stand up authors' names, book titles, and/or website addresses so they may purchase your books after the event. Thanks! :)
Now all we need is ... You!
