Practical Matters

Signing up for Salons
Now is the time! Please let me know your interests as soon as possible so I can do the numbers juggling game.

  • Previous participants — Send a 25 euro check to our meeting location and/or send an email confirmation.
  • New participants — Send a deposit of 25 euros by check to our meeting location. Email me if you need the address.

As we approach the beginning of a salon, I will email the reading schedule to those who have signed up.


  • Participation in a 6-session salon costs 75 euros which includes copying costs. A deposit of 25 euros is required to reserve your place in the salon. (Student discount available.)
  • Single session salons cost 12-20 euros (sliding scale).

First-Time Participants
Please fill in the Contact Form to let me know of your interest.

First Session Free: If the salon is not full by the date of the first meeting, you may choose to attend that first session for free and then decide whether or not to pay and continue for the full 6 sessions.

In honor of the vital group dynamics in the Salon, I reserve the right to deny particpation if I feel an applicant would not be a positive contributor to the group.

If you would like to talk to previous participants about their experience, please contact me and I will provide you with names and numbers. See also: Participant Comments.

Group Size
I keep the seminars small to create a dynamic discussion, so there are no more than 10 people in a group.
