Poetry Tuesday, Sept. 23 at The Print Gallery

The Print Gallery is a cool little place in Southfield that hosts poetry readings every now and again. The Fall 2008 Series kicks off on Tuesday, September, 23 2008 at 7:00 p.m. and features my friend the lovely Elizabeth Volpe, Rebecca B. Rank, Matthew Olzmann, and Dawn McDuffie.

So show up and say hi - and hey, maybe even get some holiday shopping done early so that you're not in tears the night before you're supposed to see your mother-in-law because you're out of time and out of ideas. The Print Gallery has a lot of cool gifty stuff, especially if you want something with the Mona Lisa on it but don't have the time or money to jet to Paris.

Diane Shipley DeCillis, the store's owner, is kind of a Mona Lisa fanatic. She and poet Mary Jo Firth Gillett even put together an anthology of poetry called Mona Poetica, which was published by Mayapple Press in 2006. I'm sure you can pick up a copy at The Print Gallery as well. Liz Volpe is even in it and would surely sign it for you. Same goes for DeCillis. Other notable poets in the anthology include Dean Young, Thomas Lynch, Edward Hirsch, and Stephen Dunn.

The Print Gallery is located at 29173 Northwestern Hwy. Southfield, MI 48034. For more info call 1-800-848-4278 or 248-356-5454 or visit

The Print Gallery is THE place to shop and THE place for poetry. Soon it will even be THE place to satisfy your sweet tooth. Honest! Diane DeCillis is adding a sweet shop to all the other goodies in her wonderful gallery.
