The Poe Museum and the James River Writers present our first Literary Salon—a new place to find inspiration this year!

We’re bringing back the grand tradition of the salon, an intimate setting to meet & fraternize with local authors as they in turn guide you in your own writing practice. Whatever your genre, this will be a great way to connect, to learn, and to philosophize. There is no cover charge. We welcome writerly types of all experience levels and readers, thinkers, and artists of every sort.

February's Topic: The Secret Heart – Considering the Dark Side of Romance with Special Guest Speaker, SLASH COLEMAN!
Thursday, February 11, 7:00-9:00 p.m.
Patrick Henry Pub & Grille, in the upstairs salon, 2300 East Broad Street (free street parking)
