For each salon, we  invite our speakers to share the resources and interesting reading they came across in researching their talk, so that we can all dig more deeply. These reading lists, along with selected excerpts, illustrations and summaries of each month’s talks are compiled in our monthly Odd Salon Journal. This reading list was compiled by Odd Salon with Todd Barrett, Kelly Jensen, and Ryan Galiotto. Thank you!
