Four years and seven blazers ago...Sappho’s Salon was re-launched! It’s our four year anniversary, and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate with you! Co-hosts Eileen Tull and Liz Baudler invite you to come and eat cupcakes with us on April 8th at 7:30 for merely a Pay-What-You-Can admission. All the money collected goes to the bookstore’s Women’s Voices Fund AND to our amazing features. To ring in four years, we have incredible poet Niki Gee, scintillating monologist Roberta Miles, and the amazing improvised musical duo of Gail Gallagher and Jessica Landis. We will also have open mic spots available, starting when the doors officially open at 7PM. Those open mic spots are available to female, trans, and non-binary performers of any art form, and your piece does not have to specifically glorify Sappho’s or Liz or Eileen, but we won’t complain if it does.
Sappho's Salon is a quarterly performance salon at Chicago's only feminist bookstore, featuring expressions of queerness, gender and feminism. The open mic sign-up list will be available at the front door starting at 7, first come, first serve. Spots are 5 minutes apiece so we can accommodate everyone. Open mic participants will receive a coupon to the bookstore! Admission is pay-what-you-can, with all proceeds going to the featured performers and the bookstore's Women's Voices Fund. This event is BYOB and the usual Mediterranean spread will be provided.
