To the Manners Born

The French Revolution. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. The oppressed escaped from the boot heel of the bourgeoisie, there were a few beheadings. Similarly, America’s pop-culture insurrection has given us great stuff like The Simpsons and the iPhone, but a lot’s been lost — foremost, in our minds, proper etiquette and social graces. But these Coelacanths of civility swim free at WVAM’s Literary Feast: The Wayward Muse. The erudite, salon-style series celebrates authors whose literary efforts draw their inspiration from art. This month, it’s Portland’s Elizabeth Hickey and her fine, Dante-inspired novel Muse. You can dine with the scribe in a tasteful setting.
