Sappho’s Salon

Sappho's Salon: A Provocative Night of Lesbian Diversions

Featuring Barrie Cole, Sapna Kumar, and Laura Stempel


$7-$10 donation includes food and wine

For tonight’s installment of our popular monthly salon night for lesbians and their friends, we welcome three Sapphic storytellers. Barrie Cole’s play, Clumsy Sublime, recently had a staged reading at the Rhinoceros Fringe Festival. She’s currently completing a short story called Fascinating Mistakes and regularly writes Love Letters to No One in Particular on her blog. Sapna Kumar performed in the 2012 Women in Comedy Festival and has been a featured comic on LOGO TV’s “One Night Stand Up.” She was a regional finalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” season 4. Laura Stempel has been a writer, artist, teacher, critic, journalist, independent scholar, consultant, university administrator and sales associate. She has written and taught about women writers, TV and other media, style, feminist and queer theory, and has published and presented personal narratives since the 1980s. Rounding out the night, Sappho’s house DJ SpinNikki will play an eclectic collection of indie, electronic, soul, dance, and world beats. Proceeds benefit the artists and the Women’s Voices Fund.
