On Friday, March 27th, Encyclopizzeria and The Office Pizza Party are joining forces for a night of stories and FREE pizza from West Town Pizza Shop.
Now in its third fiscal quarter, The Office Pizza Party III will feature stories from some of your favorite and not so favorite co-workers:
Brooks Sterritt: Besides having more Twitter followers than our company has employees, Brook Sterrits nonfiction has appeared in Tin House and is forthcoming in The Believer. His fiction has appeared in the Denver Quarterly, The Madison Review and Wigleaf among other places.
Cean Gamalinda: If Cean Gamalinda isn’t in the mail room opening up your packages, chances are he’s taking selfies in the break room. His work can be found in THE YOLO PAGES from Boost House Press.
Mary Rose O’Connor: When Mary Rose O’Connor isn’t fixing the xerox machine, she can be found directing, performing, and producing plays throughout Chicago. From March 19th-April 11th she will be directing Moraine-a play by Ryan Patrick Dolan, at the Greenhouse Theater Center.
Daniel Shapiro: Dan Shapiro works out of our Chicago office and has performed and hosted a variety of open mics throughout the city. He has a deep love for the Chicago Bears and, according to the Chicago Literati, “creates magic.” According to his Facebook profile and a quick Google search, our company was able to conclude that Daniel Shapiro shares a name with a diplomat and a birthday with Mitt Romney.
