This event will be the fifth event in a series of Book Salons which was launched in 2016. These smaller more intimate events are intended to foster more in-depth conversations about the book, its themes and the FORDEC charity.
Should you be interested in attending such an event, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that for this event you must first register as part of the Philly Book Club Meetup.
Copies of the book will be available for sale at the Book Salons. All author proceeds are being donated to the FORDEC charity.
Thank you to the hosts for their generosity in holding these events.
