These are the dates: March 13, Apr 10, and May 8.

Time commitment is 6:30pm - 9:30pm. Please only apply if you can firmly commit to at least one of these dates.

All Salons will be at Andaz Wall Street (75 Wall in Lower Manhattan, any train to Wall Street or Fulton Center and walk east), these evening Salons are open to the public 21+. These events are upscale and are listed in the New Yorker and TimeOut NY.

MORE INFO: Our monthly salons feature authors doing readings from their newest works, free wine, and discussion of life-work balance. We need lovely, people-savvy volunteers to help greet the authors and audience as they come in--make them feel at home, check reservations, show them around, and then remain available to answer questions about the facilities and the order of events, and to encourage people to sign the mailing list.

You will meet dozens of fascinating established authors as well as lots of industry notables and downtown personalities.

You: upbeat, friendly, quick thinking, good at lists. This is a business-casual event.

We are a nonprofit and our mission is to keep writers on creative track after they start a family - these Salons are intended to present authors who are parents in a new light. Our writers are huge names, straight from the NYTimes and New Yorker.

We prefer that the same volunteers come every time, but we are open to having various volunteers for various dates - please send us your availability to see if we have filled the spot! Sign up for as many or as few dates as you can FIRMLY commit to!

*** if you happen to also be great at Twitter, please let us know in your note.
