Salon: (n.) A gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation. -
Disorder Salon, a tentacle of the small publishing company Disorder Press, is a literary reading series dedicated to highlighting emerging and established authors. The series is hosted by Mikaela Grantham and John Collector.
Every first Thursday of every damn month--at 6 pm--authors from near and far will share their work at Loa at International House Hotel. After the reading, there will be time to have drinks, meet the authors, and hang out.
Disorder Salon strives to break the notion that readings are boring and stuffy, and that literature is something that only happens when you’re alone. By connecting local readers with dynamic contemporary voices, Disorder Salon seeks to build a literary community in New Orleans and beyond.
Loa will offer a tasty Happy Hour menu, with drinks created by Alan Walter, himself a songwriter and poet. Said Todd Coleman of Alan’s drinks, ”A Faulkner-esque Southern mystic, his drinks are snippets of sippable literature … using local edibles that create a far more beguiling guide for the visitor than Fodor’s.”
