Hats off to Aqua Books!

Thanks B...Kelly seems to have put his money where his mouth is.

Which is a considerable feat, considering his mouth.

(Heh. I can say this because I work for Kelly and it's part of my job description to be disrespectful...)

regarding the poetry reading(S) AT AGUA (AQUA) BOOKS hoping the persomn(s) in charge of the event(s) will remember that some
of us who are somewhat economically "challenged"- being
pressed for time mostly at public access sites regarding email annd the rest, due to the fact that it is too expensive to get on the internet at home..blah blah blah-
(you get the gist)

look for
indicating the price to attend for all such eventsmtself an amatuer (literally)writer,
Artiste-"Extrodinaire", scientist, poet...what used to be termed, a am i gathering....

would love to attend poetry reading(s)

wilt thee indicate and/or make plainer costs and such seeming trivialities for us lesser endowed fellow citizens?

perhaps we forget that poetry and the like were at one time a tradition that included poorer people and/or people from all walks...

see you soon i loo9king froward to hearing some contemporary poets and perhaps see the kind of vision you all have...

please make more obvious any costs or no for these events in future...

with respect and patience

your fellow aspirant..
