The Beyond Salon will be a sparkling evening of words, music, food, wine, and wit. Join us in honoring our executive director emeritus Richard Modiano for his years of exemplary service to Beyond Baroque; the visionary poet and UCLA English professor Harryette Mullen for her outstanding achievements in poetry; Get Lit-Words Ignite founder and director Diane Luby Lane for her service to the young poets of Los Angeles; and UCLA professor and writer Johanna Drucker for her extraordinary generosity in organizing and cataloguing Beyond Baroque’s 50,000 item archive.
The Beyond Salon takes its inspiration from the legendary Algonquin Round Table, where a circle of supremely inventive writers, actors, critics & playwrights gathered for a daily mixture of lunch and biting wit. Guests at The Beyond Salon have the option of purchasing a regular ticket to the dinner, or of selecting a special salon seating ticket that will allow them to be seated at a table host from the poetry, literary, music, and art worlds, and which will allow them entry to a pre-dinner reception with the hosts. All guests will get to enjoy an evening of entertainment and lively conversation.
