Almost   100   people   visited   This   house   of books    last    Saturday    to    find    out    What makes    it    poetry.    Some    people    came    by chance,   just   to   see   what   was   happening   in the   bookstore,   and   then   they   stayed   until the       end       of       the       event.       This       is understandable     because     Victoria     Cech, Dave     Caserio,     Tami     Haaland,     Lowell Jaeger,         Bill         Kamowski,         Bernard Quetchenbach    partake    in    a    moderated Q&A    by    Billings    Public    Library's    Gavin Woltjer.   It   was   charming,   powerful,   exciting, informative      and      frightening.      Speakers talked   about   poetry,   about   what   poetry   is   like,   how   to   read   poems   correctly.   And   what can   be   called   a   poem.   Is   there   a   future   for   poetry?   Does   poetry   have   a   present?   A wonderful   idea   was   voiced   that   despite   the   existence   of   the   Internet   and   the   Amazon, we   all   gathered   in   a   real   (not   virtual   one)   book   store.   However,   it   is   very   difficult   to describe   everything   that   happened   during   the   event.   Definitely,   this   is   one   of   those events   that   you   need   to   come   up   with   and   try   not   to   miss   even   one   word.   Many   thanks to   This   house   of   books   and   each   person   who   participated   in   the   organization   of   the event. Oh, and for dessert a performance by Dave Caserio. Enjoy!
