Literary Salon in the wilds of the rockies
|The books of the authors and poet who read at the salon.|
They are making a come back. I attended one last weekend at the home of author Barb Howard in her home nestled in the pine trees at the foot of the majestic rocky mountains.
|There be lotz of treez in Canada|
It was an informal gathering of about twenty five enthusiasts of the written word. There was wine, cheese and bread (the three food groups for writers) and readings by authors Lori Hahnel, Anne Sorbie and poet Tyler Perry.
|And there be cheez!|
It was a great way to discover new writers and a great way to expose the authors to a new audience, and maybe start a little word of mouth.
So here's to literary salons! Think about starting one in a living room near you (she says raising a glass of absinthe!)
