The ancient Roman poet Horace might be best remembered for his raunchy sexual poems, but he also offered up some sage advice on the point of writing it: “to educate and delight.” It's in that spirit that creatorsoffer up art for art's sake in Women Who Write, modeled after a classic literary salon. This celebration of creativity has been hailed as a much-needed reprieve from an increasingly ironic, fast-paced world of artistic output. Readers and performers include include Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Jane Smiley, Korel Tunador of the Goo Goo Dolls and comic actress Mo Gaffney. They'll share works-in-progress, then writer/actress/producer Vicki Abelson leads a discussion—audience included— where works can leave the page and take on a personal meaning. [SR]
