3/22 Songbath Salon

You are cordially invited to North Figueroa Bookshop for our Songbath Salon. The world around us actively fragments our attention all day. At the Salon, musicians Daniel Talton and Kyle Bates will be providing ambient “furniture music” to create an atmosphere of rest and deep focus. We hope you’ll use the space to discover something new on shelves, dive into a book of your own, or just rest a while and drone out with us. Tea and cookies will be provided! Space is limited so please RSVP soon.
