The live lit series "Is This a Thing?" returns this month with a new crop of storytellers and a new theme from 7-9 p.m. April 14 at O'Shaughnessy's Public House, 4557 N. Ravenswood Ave.

Storytellers will be sharing their "you don't understand" tales — getting it wrong, failing to connect and being misunderstood.

The event, hosted by Gregory Ledger, will feature Sheila Arora, Ines Bellina, Josh Berlin, Karen Genelly, Catherine Gibbons, Anita Mechler and Michael Van Kerckhove.

The event is free and open to all.
