We know how Mrs. Parker loathed her life in the City Angels, but something kept her there for 30 years. Money, perhaps? But the LA Chapter of the DPS is busy and having a gathering in August: Parkerfest LA on Dorothy’s actual birthday on Sunday, August 22nd. Let’s have an informal picnic at Coldwater Canyon park in Beverly Hills around 4 PM. The park is down the street from one of the residences Dorothy lived in in the 40s. We can spend our time daydreaming, playing word games and planning events for the rest of the year and 2011. Do not confuse this park with the Coldwater Canyon Park off of Mullholland. We are going to the one that is at the junction of N Beverly Drive and Coldwater Canyon Drive.
Please RSVP so that I know who to expect at 4 p.m. Parking may be a challenge: Adrienne (AT) dorothyparker (DOT) com.
The DPS in LA also attends together many classic films and screenings, so hook up with Adrienne for more details.
