Solitude Social Club: A Bookish Happy Hour with Matthew Salesses
Solitude Social Club is Hugo House’s offering to readers and writers seeking connection during the social quarantine.
Each week we’ll bring a guest writer to share a drink and discuss how they’re finding happiness through art and literature in these distancing times. After the conversation, we’ll break out into smaller groups and get to know one another.
RSVP at the “Tickets” link to join the Zoom conversation, or find us streaming on Facebook Live.
All events happen at 5 p.m. PST / 8 p.m. EST.
