Improbable Places: Salem Laundry Co.

Poetry and laundry. Who would have thunk it?

I think host Colleen Michaels said it best when she reminded the audience, "We define our community by our poetry." She went on to say how great it is to live in a place where Thursday night poetry in a laundromat is not only accepted in our town but normal. Just another night in Beverly, MA.

Check out what the Boston Globe is saying about the tour!

Enjoy the photos from Thursday night's reading.

This is so wonderful, Jan. This impresses me a million times more, really, than AWP and Miami Bookfair gigs (which do impress me, too).

I love this! Really want to set this up in Seattle. Any tips on best places? That looks like one huge laundromat!
