Just got word that a new literary salon has scheduled its first meeting for Monday January 23 in Musso & Frank — you know, I’m half-thinking about going, if not to this one, then to a later session. What a great place to stage a salon.
Topic out of the gates is John Fante, with Dan Fante as the main guest speaker.
The salon conflicts with the tenth Noir City film festival at the Castro, but if you can’t make Noir City you can amuse yourself right outside the doors of M&F by tracking down stars on the Walk of Fame — noir stars, and a lot of them. We’ve got noir. They’ve got noir.
