Speak Easy Salon

National Poetry Month and Jazz Appreciation Month

On April 21 at 3:30 p.m. the Speak Easy Salon will meet to celebrate poetry and jazz.  Please bring in a poem of significance to you. We will also consider poetry written in the jazz tradition and listen to the music of the noted musicians.  The Speak Easy Salon began last March with a focus on the prohibition era, hence, its name.  Some of the program themes have been Landscapes: Literal and Symbolic; World Heritage Sites in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji and book discussions of such titles as Stones into Schools by Greg Mortenson; and Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder.
