Guernica writer Melanie Janisse, the proprietor of Zoots Café, is creating a Poem Room in Zoots — “a poetry library and thinking room”. Janisse, whose Orioles in The Oranges poetry collection was published in 2009, has put out a call for donations of review copies or used poetry books to fill the shelves. “This room will be a permanent showcase for everyone,” Melanie writes, “a public space dedicated to poems.”

If you have poetry books you would like to donate, you can either drop them off or mail them to: Zoots at 1438 Dundas Street West, Toronto, ON M6J 1Y6 (416-536-2233).
