Had a great time on Saturday/June 15 with the crowd at Starbucks (on Dempster by Karlov) as we listened to Evanston's own singer-songwriter Kristin Lems tell stories and sing in French, Persian and English--her own songs and others--about spirit and challenge.
To be clear, while Kristin is a neighbor, she's known worldwide.
Learn more about her from this piece by Skokie-based Myrna Petlicki for the Evanston Review and another piece published by the Illinois Times.
Kristin plays that Skokie Starbucks again on August 17, 7-9 p.m.
Freewill donation is being asked for, so bring some cash, some gift cards or...hmm, whatever.
Before she comes back to Skokie, she'll be at the Evanston Lakeshore Arts Festival on August 4, 11 a.m. - noon, on the stage at Dawes Park at Sheridan Rd. and Church St. The festival and free and open to the public.
