After we lost our lease and moved the Coffee Shop to Los Feliz, we were able to use Michael’s Room during the day for private parties and groups. One group that met regularly in Michael’s Room was the Southern California chapter of the Mystery Writers of America. They immediately claimed the wall outside Michael’s Room as the mystery writer’s wall and we dutifully framed and mounted their book jackets. Roger L.
