Dorothy Parker’s Birthday — 5–8pm SLT

Hey, jazz babies! Join Miss Mag­dale­na Kamenev at her club “Wit’s End” on Fri­day, August 22nd, to cel­e­brate the birth­day of poet, crit­ic, short-sto­ry writer and wit Dorothy Park­er. There will be 1920s and 1930s music on the stream, excerpts of Dot­tie’s work, and a free gift all day long.

The Park­er pro­gram begins at 5 pm SLT, when Steel­head Library Direc­tor Riv­en Home­wood leads an hour-long dis­cus­sion on Park­er at the café. From 6–8 pm SLT, Gabrielle Riel will be spin­ning 1920s and 1930s tunes.

Peri­od cos­tume (flap­per, rum run­ner, Valenti­no, etc.) encour­aged but not required. Come par­ty with us and soak up some atmos­phere and con­ver­sa­tion … or maybe just some bath­tub gin. To lis­ten remote­ly to Radio Riel’s stream, go to this URL: http://music.radioriel.org .
