Joyce Carol Oates
2:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. at Harold Washington Library; free
Columbia College's Story Week Festival of Writers really gets rolling today as superstar author Joyce Carol Oates makes two appearances at the downtown library to talk about, well, herself. At 2:30 p.m., Gavin Cologne-Brookes, the author of Dark Eyes on America: The Novels of Joyce Carol Oates, hosts a Q&A and signing session. At 6 p.m., the literary icon will read and discuss her work with Donna Seamon of Chicago Public Radio.

Essay Fiesta
7 p.m. at The Book Cellar; free
These aren't your high school English essays. "Essay Fiesta" features humorous nonfiction performed in the cozy confines of the Book Cellar, one of America's very few bookstores with a liquor license. The best part: Despite being a fundraiser for Howard Brown Center, the event is somehow free.

Woods, Real Estate, Netherfriends
9 p.m. at Lincoln Hall; $12
Chicago's Netherfriends will be the most cacophonous act of this three-pronged lo-fi bill, thanks to its yelping pop plateau. Real Estate bring things along with beach-comber guitars and floating choruses from the New Jersey band's best-of-2009 charting self-titled debut. Woods closes with enough sunshine pop to send this Chicago winter off for good.
