At Innisfree Poetry Bookstore & Cafe

According to this caption, Elle and I were "more."

Last evening, Elle and I were honored to be the featured guests of Brian Buckley at his Innisfree Poetry Bookstore & Cafe.  That wonderful shop is at 1203 13th Street in Boulder.

Innisfree is a coffee shop, book store, study area, and live entertainment venue on "the Hill."  In fact, Innisfree is only the third exclusively-poetry bookstore to open in the United States.  As a socially-aware enterprise in a student-populated area, Brian warmly welcomed us to tell our story to the students and locals gathered in Innisfree's poetry reading area.

From 7:00 pm to about 8:45, we sat at the microphone, told the story of the book, and answered some outstanding questions from the CU students and other members of the audience.  We were particularly touched by the direct and insightful nature of the questions and comments.

The photo at the top shows the poetry reading area.  The pic is ripped from the Innisfree website.  Of course, that's not Elle and me behind the mic!

  1. Sounds wonderful, David. Many thanks to you and Elle for taking the book that you created into our community to help others learn more about our homeless neighbors. We are one community--a lesson we must learn.

    You two are great ambassadors.
