This event is part of our literary series, The Other Shelf, where we present exceptional writers in a smaller space. These events are held in the Novella Room in the Bram & Bluma Appel Salon.


Please don't print your tickets! We're trying to reduce paper waste for Appel Salon events, so please don't bother printing your ticket. We'll either scan your ticket on your smartphone or quickly find your name on our tablets and check you in.

Arrive early, meet people. The talk starts at 6 pm, but doors open at 5:30 pm. Come early so you can chat with your fellow literature lovers, and make new friends. As with all Appel Salon events, we'll have a cash bar with a selection of beer, wine, and liquor, as well as sandwiches and snacks.
