Zan Stewart: Jazz Musician, Writer, Raconteur
talking about jazz & wailing on sax
a Bird & Beckett live stream via facebook
This Thursday, 7/25, at 7:30pm, we present a live stream talk and performance by

He has stories to tell about the greats he encountered in his writing career, and notes to blow by way of illustration, tribute and self-expression.
Stop by our live stream on facebook for what portends to be a fascinating, illuminating and beautiful evening.
Here’s where to view the facebook live stream:
