Dec. 8 Virtual Literary Salon: Clarinda’s Kitchen

Brickhouse Books’ very own Clarinda Harriss is hosting “Clarinda’s Kitchen” on December 8th in partnership with TURFA (Towson University Retired Faculty Association).

“Our Literary Kitchen will not take place in a chic atelier, at a Paris address in the company of Alice B. Toklas, or amid the glorious clutter of great modern art like the Cone sisters’ Baltimore apartment,” said Clarinda regarding the name of this literary salon. “But these days, isn’t the kitchen where the real talk goes on during most parties?”

This is the first time TURFA will host this virtual event. In a November newsletter to members, TURFA President Jane L. Wolfson, Ph.D. wrote that these salons are “very loosely modeled on and in the spirit of those held by Coco Chanel, Gertrude Stein, and the Cone sisters.” Wolfson also discussed the structure of the events: “At these salons we will meet, hear from and converse with writers — both famous and fledging — for about an hour or so. Our role is to join with our preferred beverage in hand, prepared to listen, talk, and enjoy ourselves.”

Clarinda’s Kitchen will feature BhB poet Kathi Wolfe (most recently, Love & Kumquats) and poet Doug Mowbray, who also serves on BhB’s Board of Directors.

TURFA members will receive a link to the event later this month.
