Zoots Café Poem Room Project

Share |

Melanie Janisse, writer, artist and Open Book contributor, is also the proprietor of Zoots Café. She's setting up a Poem Room in Zoots — "a poetry library and thinking room" — and has put out a call asking for donations of review copies or used poetry books to fill the shelves. The poetry books will be available for lending and reference. "This room will be a permanent showcase for everyone," Melanie writes, "a public space dedicated to poems."

Have some poetry books you no longer need or just want to contribute to this brilliant project? Drop off your books to Zoots at 1438 Dundas Street West (416-536-2233).
