Cole Louison! We love Cole, and Cole loves us; he even put a dedication to the bookstore in U.S. Army Zombie Training Manual. How cool!
Cole works at GQ, freelances for the Times, Outside Magazine and scribd.com.
Online, you can read "Tangled Up in Blue" and its continuation "Her Blue Heaven" from The New York Times' website. On scribd.com he covered the inauguration in Washington and has a piece up titled Notes From An Evening With leonard Cohen.
Burlingham Books carries all of his books and we hope to carry many more!
REQUEST FOR PAGES OF YOUR POETRY FOR ANNUAL PUBLIC ART EVENT! April is National Poetry Month. Pages of poetry dance in the breeze… on the downtown windows of Main Street businesses… poetry written by poets who are ordinary people from across the U.S. and greater world. Even skeptics of ‘traditional poetry’ will discover something here that they find funny, if not meaningful.
2013 “POETRY BEYOND BOUNDARIES”
Writers/ visual artists are invited to submit one 6 inch by 6 inch card with a combination of art and interpretive haiku, tweets or cell phone texted language. Any form of artwork, writing, painting, drawing, fiber, collage that can hang by a clothespin is eligible for entry.
These 6 x 6 poem cards will be exhibited in the upstairs ACWC Members' Gallery during the month of April and will be offered to the general public for a suggested donation.
Mail your 6x6 card submission to:
Arts Council for Wyoming County – 6x6

Burlingham Books is offering:
- Latte/capuccino demonstration at 6:30pm - see the skill that goes into our espresso drinks every day and get a close-up look at our new espresso machine!
- A small-scale scavenger hunt between our store and i.s.e. upstairs (participate for a chance to win a free pastry, free regular coffee, or $1 off your next purchase)
Speaking of i.s.e., there will be a congruous open house between us and them - walk from our store up the back stairs to meet the people of In Site Enterprises and their Main & More partners: Cornucopia Frame Shop, Rocket Commercial Real Estate, and Sweet Sarah's! See what they have to offer (i.s.e. is serving wine and one would assume Sarah has confections - we can't wait!)

Our espresso machine (blue in more than one sense of the word) has died. The new one comes Thursday. Until then, we're making do. Plenty of regular coffee, fruit smoothies, and the like. But it's still a sad day.
