Literary Salon – Stanza 14
Friday 3rd August 5.30pm Velvet Saloon : Meteor Theatre
In collaboration with Browsers Bookshop and The Meteor Theatre, we present a special Toi Wāhine Literary Salon.
It’s our 14th Salon…can we call it a Sonnet?
Our local literary scene is full of creative and determined women, this Salon features three stars from an extraordinary line-up of Waikato based talent.
How do we love them? Let us count the ways…they are the depth and breadth and height, our Salon can reach.. and this will be an inspiring evening for readers and writers to meet and converse.
Relax with a free glass of wine and nibbles in the ‘Velvet Saloon’ and enjoy an exchange of ideas with our speakers:
