Join us for our upcoming Spiral Salon featuring two local authors, a local performance artist, and a local musician!
We created The Spiral Salon to showcase a variety of talent and to create an enjoyable and inclusive space for like-minded folks. This casual gathering is a way for you to mingle and experience the creativity that this area has to offer. Light refreshments will be provided.
Our line-up includes:
Elise Miller – author
Eugene Hsue – poet
Puppet Master – performance artist
Bryan Miller – music
Elise Miller’s first novel, Star Craving Mad, was published by Warner Books. Her personal essay Forgive Me was published in the anthology Because I Love Her. Other personal essays chronicling her oversexed, under-supervised adolescence during the asymmetrical 1980s have been published on nerve.com, Papotage and Fresh Yarn. Excerpts from her latest novel were recently published on Northern Liberties Review, and Elephant Journal. Elise runs Beechwood Writers’ Workshop here at the Spiral Bookcase and can be found on the web at elisemiller.com.
Eugene Hsue writes poetry from the fabric of life. A licensed attorney, he works as a librarian who guides students and professors with their research. This is his first reading in the Philadelphia area.
Kris Rhood has been performing with her puppet Roki since 1990, but has only been performing as Puppet Master since the mid 2000’s [the name originated at the Five Spot]. Since then Puppet Master has performed at various places in and around Philadelphia.
Bryan Miller cut his musical teeth in Brooklyn playing for various hardcore, metal, ska/funk and Zeppelin cover bands before leading the Brooklyn Country band Miller’s Farm—back when there was no such thing as Brooklyn Country. An award-winning singer-songwriter, Bryan has had the honor of hearing his music played on an obscure NBC TV show. Bryan lives on the Main Line with his family, where he plays in hospitals for Musicians on Call, at a coffee shop here, a club there, and occasionally plays with Miller’s Farm back in New York.
