Event Details

The Center presents B.A.M. Salon (Book and Movie Salon) for women hosted by Flynn Sylvest and Irma O’Dell.

We are excited to kick off LGBTQ+ BAM Salon. Our Book and Movie Salon

(BAM Salon) looks to develop and deepen LGBTQ+ community and connection through stimulating and informative conversations about books and movies that highlight women authors and women's stories and experiences.

"Salon" references a centuries rich history of social gatherings from around the world most often run by women. Creative minds come together for the art of conversation, learning and social pleasure. Gertrude Stein and Zora Neale Hurston ran noteworthy salons in the U.S. in the 1920's which were famous for bringing together innovative thinkers and artists. We hope you join us for a taste of vintage mutual education, enrichment and social fun!

The B.A.M. Salons will take place virtually on the third Tuesdays of the month from 7:00-8:30pm.

We plan to alternate monthly between books and movies.
