Tuesday Literary Salon
“If a story is in you, it has to come out.”
- William Faulkner
As part of our Southern Exposure Series, this summer we introduce two very special Literary Salons hosted by Memphis’ newest Irish restaurant and by one of the city’s great patrons of the arts.
Join us at the cooling hour of 6:00 pm for cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, live music, and some of the best words ever written. Elegant, intimate, and cool as a mint julep in shaved ice.
Mark Twain at Twilight
Tuesday, July 22 6:00-8:00 pm
starring Pete Pranica (television play-by-play man for the Memphis Grizzlies) and live ragtime music on the grand piano
Hosted by Mr. Milton T. Schaeffer in his Germantown residence
The mighty humorist of the Mississippi wrote the reconstructing South into existence for much of America with his novels, short stories, and his live stand-up routine. Hear first-hand Mr. Twain's remarkable take on life during a remarkable period in the history of our country. With wit, honesty, and infinite charm, Mr. Twain will with soothe and delight!
Tickets are $55 per event, or $100 for both. Your ticket buys you light appetizers, champagne, wine, live music, and our star of the evening. Seating is extremely limited. Tickets are now on sale while they last. Program subject to change.
To purchase tickets today, call the TSC Box Office at 901-759-0604 or go purchase online.
Of Ireland Born
Tuesday, June 10 from 6:00-8:00 pm
starring Bosco Hogan, star of stage and screen’s The Tudors, The Borgias, In the Name of the Father and the live music of Robert Johnson and John Albertson
Hosted by Seamus Loftus at The Brass Door in downtown Memphis (near the Rendezvous) 152 Madison Avenue, 38103
Drink in the mastery of Irish writers as Irish film and stage star Bosco Hogan reads from a sampling of works that helped create The Republic of Ireland. Revel in Yeats, Synge, O' Connor, and O'Casey -- great voices of passion, rebellion, resistance, and persistence (and they can be very funny too!) The work continues to influence Southern writers today.
We need your expertise, your volunteerism, your good ideas, and your financial generosity.
