As most of you know, the tradition of the Poet's Cottage is alive and well at the new Poetry Center in the Helen S. Schaefer Building. The first guest to spend the night in our new apartment will be Lucille Clifton, who reads as part of our Reading Series on Thursday, November 1. As a frequent visitor to our previous guest cottages on Highland and Cherry Avenues Lucille is the perfect person to inaugurate our new space.
In the next week we need to finish outfitting the apartment with kitchen equipment, bath and bedding accessories. We're spreading the word among our friends and colleagues to help us fill the space with beautiful things. If you would like to help, please visit our Housewarming Gift Registry at Crate and Barrel. Go to "Make a Gift" and type in Gail Browne.
Thank you for your generosity.
