The Holiday Rush

Greetings, readers:

Sorry to have been away for so long, but the holiday snuck right up on us! And I hear that there is another one coming. Now that we’re back, we are ready to rock n’ roll right through December. For starters, we have a great event opportunity planned for the new year: we will be hosting a celebration of William Stafford and our students at In Other Words on January 7 at 7 p.m. Oregon Poet Laureate Paulann Petersen and a few of our students will be present to share their poetry with you. And, hey, if you’re one of our student poets reading this right now, feel free to drop us an e-mail if you want to be a part of any future events.

This week, my group and I are gearing up for our promotions and sales push. We’ve designed posters and a fabulous selection of buttons to give away at our upcoming events, and we are very excited to work with our media partners, Paulann Petersen, Kim Stafford, and all of our wonderful student writers. Because we all belong in history, don’t you think?

To the Printer!

Greetings, readers:

Happy Veterans Day! I hope those of you who had the day off yesterday enjoyed your extended weekend.

I’m delighted to inform you that the We Belong in History book package has been sent to the printer. Our galleys looked wonderful, and we can’t wait to see the final product.

I’m also happy to let you know that we’ve scheduled our first event for the book. We’ll be premiering the publication at In Other Words on January 7 at 7:00 p.m. Bring your friends, your friends’ friends, and your grandma to a night of poetry readings, activities, and community! In the meantime, be sure to check out the We Belong in History webpage for exciting news updates and information on how to order your own copy of this lovely poetry anthology.
