Poetry Jumps Off the Shelf” A mission to place poetry in public places where it is not expected!  This truly unique project became a reality in 2004 when it was founded through the efforts of our November guest author, Shoshauna Shy.  Ms. Shy is an award winning poet, publishing flash fiction as well.  In addition, and a great deal more connected to poetry, she also works for the Wisconsin Humanities Council and runs a cat care business. Ms. Shy lives in Madison with her husband.  Please join us to learn more about this Midwestern Poet with a much further reach!
