Please join us for the Royal Oak Salon summer finale! It has been quite a summer, my god. And to think it will continue, and in such style! Royal Oak Salon 4 will be all poetry all the time–a sort of homecoming. They are poets, these lovers, and they will leave you with a sense of yourself, if not themselves. Please join us, we love you.

The second Royal Oak Salon has been rescheduled for Friday, June 29th. Apparently a new Charlie Kaufman film is being taped at the Royal Oak Monday-Thursday, and they do not want us as extras. The reading/performance will still run 8-10pm, at which point we shall resume our regular Friday evening activities. Sorry for the late notice, and we implore you: come!

Royal Oak Salon #2 will feature candles, air-conditioning, three superb writers, and no songs afterwards.

TAO LIN will read poetry.

JED LIPINSKI will read fiction.

ANNA MCDONALD will read poetry.
