Monday, Feb. 21 is the first of the Algonquin Hotel’s "spoken word" series of free talks on its famed Second Floor. Marion Meade is going to be talking about her most recent book, Bobbed Hair & Bathtub Gin: Writer’s Running Wild in the Twenties (which comes out in paperback in a few months).
In addition to Meade, two actresses will be on hand to perform as well. Caroline McMahon and Donna Coney Island, who both were in the cast of The Talk of The Town musical at the Bank Street Theatre, are going to help bring to life the subjects of the book: Dorothy Parker, Zelda Fitzgerald, Edna Ferber and Edna St. Vincent Millay.
The evening begins at 6 p.m. with a cash bar cocktail hour. This is followed at 7 p.m. with the program, which is FREE and open to the public. Reservations are a good idea, call Barbara McGurn at the Gonk, 212-840-6800.
Bring some friends, this promises to be a wonderful evening. If you want to order the book, click here.
