What haven't we asked that you'd like to share?
The book, Saturday Salon: Bringing Community and Conversation Back Into Our Lives, is available in ebook form and print versions, through my site and Amazon, iBookstore, Nook, etc.; but my website is a good place to get started. I update it frequently with hosting tips, new recipes, pictures of new Saturday Salons, etc. Anyone who hosts a salon and sends me pics and the topics they discussed could be the "Featured Salon" of the month! And if anyone lives in the Orange County area, I would be happy to help them host a Saturday Salon of their own.
