I walked around Swedish Days in Geneva today. I was looking for a booth for the Republic of Letters. Annie Baldwin had passed around postcards about this organization this morning at Limestone. It’s a non-profit, new in the area, with a mission that states: “Reclaiming the civic space through reading, writing and argument.” They plan on holding events, classes and setting up a bookstore in Geneva. I support any attempt to bring more literary stuff into the area and so should you. Check out their website and if you like what you see, do what you can to get involved and help. Hopefully I will see the Republic of Letters organizers at Waterline next season! Being a writer is a tough gig and we all have to help each other out.
