Nov-Dec events in Paris

Jump to last reply

Marcy, I got this email this morning thought you would be interested as you are going to Paris in November!


Here are the Nov-Dec events that I have received. There will be a next listing in Jan, and perhaps one in Dec, depending. I did not hear from Live Poets or from Red Wheelbarrow or Village Voice, so please check in with those venues to see what is happening in Nov-Dec!

Best to you all in Paris! And if you have friends in the states who want to come out and say hello to me, I am reading at a variety of locales, see www.zenadmen.com/fluorescence for venues.

Best

8 Nov?start date. 8-10 PM for 6 weeks. Alesian Literary Salon: subject is Toni Morisson?s Beloved . Contact and reserve via email at: literarysalon@wanadoo.fr or look online for more info: http://literarysalon.free.fr

9 Nov?start date for Tuesday Afternoons 1:30-3:30 PM Alesian Literary Salon: subject Short Stories. Contemporary Short Stories Each week we will look at two short stories, perhaps in reflection of each other, perhaps using one for close analysis and the other to simply respond to by assessing the pleasure of the read. James Baldwin, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, William Faulkner, Tobias Wolff, Alice Munro, Paul Bowles and Nadine Gordimer. Salon will provide ideas about how to enter the short story, and find your footing, how to use the tools provided by the writer to immerse yourself in this precise and complete world. We will look carefully at the creation of voice, tone, perspective and setting in the micro world of short fiction. Participants will put the study to practice by developing a short work of fiction to be presented at the final meeting. To sign up, Contact and reserve via email at: literarysalon@wanadoo.fr or look online for more info: http://literarysalon.free.fr

9 Nov?start date for Tuesday Evenings 8-10 PM Alesian Literary Salon: subject Hamlet Starting Nov. 9. How does one introduce a play that is already drunk on its own superlatives? For this Salon, I propose we come to study Hamlet afresh, not worrying about whether we see it as Shakespeare?s greatest play ever or whether we stand breathless at the language. As with any other Salon dealing with a dramatic work, we will perform large parts of the text and view various filmed adaptations. If the group feels an extra session is required to complete our study, we will work to find an extra meeting time. Contact and reserve via email at: literarysalon@wanadoo.fr or look online for more info: http://literarysalon.free.fr
