First off, let me thank Paulann Petersen for being our honored guest at the We Belong in History launch party last Tuesday at In Other Words bookstore. I also want to thank our friends with the Figures of Speech Reading Series for hosting our event. And let us not forget our student poets, without whom we would not have a book. If you missed the festivities on January 7, don’t fret: there will be another opportunity to celebrate Stafford’s life, works, and philosophy with the student poets of We Belong in History on February 12 at Broadway Books. Make sure to check back here in the coming weeks for all the details.
Even though We Belong in History is now in print, we here at Ooligan Press have a great many tasks left to accomplish. Now that the book is launched and officially in circulation, we are implementing our sell-through plan. This includes following up with bloggers who are interested in spreading Stafford’s message, as well as applying for awards and other tasks designed to help get the word out.
A heartfelt thanks once again to everyone who helped make our launch party such a success. Together, we do indeed belong in history.
