You are invited to an Online Salon!

We will be holding an online conversational salon on Monday, May 18, 2020 at 7PM. If you've never been to a salon before, it will be similar to this. If you have been to a salon before — or if you used to attend mine —and would like to join us, welcome! We will be talking about solitude and leadership, using this essay as a starting point. For more information and meeting particulars, email me at newsalonnyc@gmail.com. We look forward to seeing you there! ~VB

I know it's short notice, but I hope some of you can make it! [more inside]
