We’d like to box the Rivoli for their anti-peanut allergy stance, but tonight a couple of writers do the boxing for us, by way of The Box Salon. Golda Fried will read from her newly thatched and hatched Coach House press title. And Claudia Dey, Paige Gratland, Karen Hines, and Greg Hollingshead will also be on hand to read, and eat things that may or may not contain peanuts, but even if they do not the Rivoli cannot guarantee that anyone with a peanut allergy may not spontaneously combust upon entering the resto.
But back to boxes, and books, and Basement Records, where one of the characters in Golda Fried‘s book works. The book tells the story of Alice, a naive young McGill frosh. She hides out at the film society, and pines for a boy who wears black eyeliner. Sounds very good indeed.
