Salon at Six Literary Series: Session II - July 15, July 30 and August 12
This interactive salon-style literary arts series is a partnership between Beauregard-Keyes House and the Tennessee Williams & New Orleans Literary Festival. Participants in the Salon will meet with writers for a series of engaging virtual discussions about the author's latest work and creative processes in a small and interactive setting. Participants will read the author's latest book and come together online as a group for discussion, inspiration, and even some opportunities to explore their own creative side.
Current sessions of the salon will take place digitally and transition to in-person sessions at the historic Beauregard-Keyes House when safe to gather. To keep the experience intimate, salon sessions are capped at 16 participants. Sessions to be conducted via Zoom. Recorded sessions will be available to you if you can't participate in real time for every meeting. No refunds.
SALON SERIES #2: $20 includes three meetings online, July 15, July 30, and August 12 at 6 pm featuring Minrose Gwin and her book The Accidentals. Sessions will last approximately one hour.
Session 1 July 15: Meet Minrose, be ready to dive into The Accidentals chapters 1 - 8.
Session 2 May 24: Continue our discussion, this time focusing on chapters 9 - 19.
Session 3 May 31: Finish the book in time to discuss your impressions and have your questions answered by Minrose.
To participate in this program, you will need to secure a copy of The Accidentals. It is widely available in print, e-version, and audio version, but we'd love for you to buy it from our partners at Garden District Book Shop.
