I would like to inform all that this Meetup is only a small part of the group that meets once a month for The Erotic Literary Salon. We have been averaging 40+ attendees plus about a dozen readers. So don't feel that if no one signs up or only a few do, that the event won't happen. It is on, tomorrow, Tuesday the 17th February. Go to www.TheEroticLiterarySalon.com and check under Category for Press Release. Great feature for this event.

PHILADELPHIA: The Erotic Literary Salon, unique in the English-speaking world has launched a growing movement mainstreaming erotica. Salons attract a supportive audience of 40 or more individuals. Approximately half participate as writers, readers, storytellers, spoken word performers of original works/words of others, the rest just come to listen, enjoy and applaud. Frances, our resident nonagenarian (93 years young) will recite her original erotica.
The next Salon will be held Tuesday, September 21. Part of the evening will feature award winning Philadelphia writer Tamara Oakman, reading her chronicle of love, deception and betrayal - “Sapphire’s Song.” http://www.myspace.com/tamaraoakman. Introducing a new addition to the http://www.CulturalSalons.comseries, violinist/composer and fabric artist Gloria Justen and electronic rhythm-maker Greg Habiby will play a ten-minute set from their upcoming show Wave Riding: Art + Music - Dance Party. The show is a combination of fabric art installation, music and an invitation to move if it moves you. http://www.gloriajusten.com
