In the early 1990s, Utne Reader was one of the primary figures in the resurgence of salons—intimate gatherings for face-to-face conversation and idea exchange. The article "Salons and Beyond" from the March/April 1991 issue remains an excellent primer to salons for the uninitiated, and we hope the resources provided below will help spark another salon resurgence.
