Virtual Author Event - Polly Samson, "A Theater for Dreamers"

7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Video premiere: Thursday, June 24, 7:00 p.m. on Facebook.com/STLCoLibraryPolly Samson, “A Theater for Dreamers”In April of 1960, a young Leonard Cohen arrived on the beautiful Greek island of Hydra. Just twenty-five years old, the charismatic poet was welcomed into a community of artists and writers, including Norwegian painter Axel Jensen, and Axel’s gentle, doting wife Marianne, who would soon become Leonard’s muse, inspiring his classic songs “So Long Marianne” and “Bird on the Wire.” Now, based on this bohemian community and their legendary exploits, rock-and-roll insider Polly Samson’s “A Theater for Dreamers” is a spellbinding tour-de-force about the wars waged between men and women on the battlegrounds of genius.  Books available from Novel Neighbor. Curbside pick-up and shipping available.
