The Literary House Press Goes to Washington

On October 29, 2014, the Literary House Press celebrated the recent launch of The Book of Scented Things: 100 Contemporary Poems about Perfume with a festive event at the Arts Club of Washington in DC. Contributors James Arthur, Michelle Chan Brown, Leslie Harrison, and Shara Lessley read their poems as well as their favorites by others in the anthology. The poetry reading was followed by a discussion with editors Jehanne Dubrow and Lindsay Lusby about the making of the collection, moderated by Sandra Beasley. We finished the evening with a book sale and signing, refreshments, and a special presentation of Chanel’s “olfactorum” and their Les Exclusifs scents by the representatives at Saks Fifth Avenue.
