If you stopped by Eureka Books during the February Arts Alive! you were no doubt impressed with our guest Jacqueline Suskin and her Poetry Store. Suskin creates poems made to order on her typewriter while you wait. And you don’t have to wait long! Her well of inspiration is clearly close at hand.
Now Suskin is raising money for a 2011 book tour. She needs $5,000 by February 27th.
Here’s what she says about the tour:
I will travel across the country doing different events, reading my work, collaborating with local artists and musicians, and creating celebrations based around poetry. My hope is to earn enough funds in order to support each event (food, entertainment, venue fees, etc..), printing costs, and travel expenses.
I will also be doing Poem Store whenever I can (www.yoursubjectyourprice.com). This will be an added way to bring poetry into as many lives as possible. I am excited to interact with anyone who is still engaged in the importance of poetry as a driving part of American culture.
She’s almost halfway to her goal. You can pledge your support here.
