Starting at noon today, we’re live streaming from New York’s legendary Harlem Arts Salon. We have a camera inside the salon, to observe a rare conversation between Nobel Laureate and novelist Toni Morrison (who just turned 82) and iconoclastic Bay Area novelist, poet, and MacArthur “genius award” recipient Ishmael Reed. Their conversation will be moderated by poet, and Miles Davis biographer, Quincy Troupe. The event promises to be an interesting gathering of some of the most intriguing American writers gathered in the living room of Margaret Porter Troupe and Quincy Troupe. Also, one of the Bay Area’s best kept secrets is that Mildred Howard, known for her sculptural installations and mixed media assemblage work, is a fantastic cook! She has flown out specifically to make the meal for this talk.
The stream should start at about 11:30, talk begins at noon. Enjoy!
