Debra Hughes will be joining Hampton Sides, Doug Preston, David Morrell, Sally Denton, Tony O’Brien, Mark Bryant, and Margaret Wrinkle in a Salon hosted by Santa Fe Workshops' Writers Lab on Thursday, March 9 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Sunmount Room, Santa Fe Workshops campus at the IHM Retreat Center—50 Mt. Carmel Road, off Camino del Monte Sol. The event is open to the public.
The authors will read from their own books or from literature they love in keeping with literary salons of the past held in the Sunmount Room. Exactly a century ago the Sunmount Room, as part of the Sunmount Sanitarium, was the setting for monthly salons offered to inspire the clients staying at the hospital to cure their tuberculosis. Some of the luminaries who gave readings in the Sunmount Room included Carl Sandberg, Witter Bynner, Willa Cather, Ezra Pound, Robert Flaherty, and Alice Corbin.
