Marché de la poésie

It’s a fun weekend, despite April-y rain showers: on Place St Sulpice the 2007 Marché de la poésie assembles vast numbers of small press poetry publishers (and a few of the larger ones, such as Gallimard and Flammarion) and even vaster numbers of poets come to check out each other’s books & publishers, and hang out in the restaurant bar at the south-west corner or the old Café de la Mairie on the North-East corner of the square — or just saunter among the stalls and rush back to help their publishers throw vast plastic sheets over the books when the rain starts. I forgot my camera yesterday, but happily one other wanderer brought hers & just sent me a few snapshots. Below is one of them. I’ll try to remember to take some photos — of books & poetas — today & will post them tomorrow.
