SpeakEasy: Don't Quit Your Day Job!
Join us for SpeakEasy with Susan Larson. She'll lead a discussion with writers Tom Sancton, Mona Lisa Saloy, Greg Herren and Cornell Landry.
October 24, 2013
6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Chickie Wah Wah, 2828 Canal St.
Do you long to be a published writer? Do you often marvel over how many people write for a living? Even if you answer no to both those questions, you are still sure to enjoy the discussion that is planned for the October 24 SpeakEasy — we ponder the peaceful coexistence of our dream job and our reality... and when the two become one.
Meet Susan as she talks to:
- Tom Sancton – musician, professor, memoirist, novelist, former head of the Time Magazine Paris bureau
- Mona Lisa Saloy – professor, singer, poet (and former NFL folklorist. Yeah, you read that right)
- Greg Herren – mystery novelist and NO/AIDS Task Force researcher
- Cornell Landry - children's book author AND he just wrapped working on Top Chef.
Join the conversation on Thursday October 24 at Chickie Wah Wah. The conversation is good, the food is good and the bartenders are good — it’s all good at SpeakEasy!
AND, there's more, Octavia Books will be there selling books from each of our esteemed guests.
