Wake: Up to Poetry
Favorite Customers: Gene
This morning, all of the interns got together with Candide to hear her report from the Tools of Change conference in New York last week. What she had to say about the status of e-technology and e-books was exciting, but also left us all in a state of panic. How can we ever keep up with “the cloud” and new technology? How can we put poetry in e-formats without losing the integrity of its form? Will anyone ever read “real” books anymore?
Just when we felt totally lost under the weight of these new tasks, one of the interns brought the mail in, and it included a letter from one of our newest and most loyal customers, Gene from Crowley, Texas. In the last month or so, we’ve received a handwritten letter at least once a week with a new book order. Somehow, it’s heartening to know that there are still folks out there who get their reading material the old school way.
Thanks, Gene, for supporting us and keeping our hopes up as we embark on this new path!
