Ellie’s Bakery is the newest venue for p2g!
My husband, Michael, and I have been hanging out in Providence, RI quite a bit in the print shop of AS220 working on silk screening his design for USAT’s Rio 2016 Olympic team poster. We love Providence for its accessibility, architecture, the arts district, but mostly because of Ellie’s Bakery. We go every time we’re there which lately is twice wkly, and today it was twice daily. I worked on my poetry manuscript while sipping on an iced lavender matcha, eating a peach and pecan scone. Later, Michael and I went back for lunch for a chicken and bacon salad sandwich, and cinnamon roll for dessert. Michael loves cinnamon rolls and swears these are some of the best he’s ever had. The only others that come close are from Toddle Squat Bakery in Granville, OH.
Max, Ellie’s Bakery manager, is excited about the mission of p2g and is hoping to extend our poetry to their sister restaurant, Gracie’s, down the street. Thanks Max!
Poetry and cinnamon rolls! Doesn’t get much better than that.
Five new poets featured this month and all five poems have love and/or summertime in the air. The poems in this collection are copied on different colors of paper, thanks to a suggestion from Porter Square Books, so make sure you collect all five.
Haute Coffee and Porter Square Books both ran out of last month’s collection, and Sunbird Cafe had only a few left. The other venues had at least half the collection gone, so we know at least upwards of 800 copies of poems have been read and taken.
Keep a look out, spread the word, and don’t forget to submit one of your own.
John Bonanni, editor of The Cape Cod Poetry Review Literary Journal was getting breakfast at Sunbird Cafe in Orleans, MA when he found p2g. He posted Mani Iyer’s haikus on Cape Cod’s Poetry Review‘s facebook page, giving kudos to the project. Thanks John!
