Holy Cow, had our annual El Chorro Off-Leash Dog Park fund-raising event yesterday so Poem Sunday just went Pfffttt.
So, instead of a poem, there's this in Sunday's Tribune: "Coalesce Bookstore celebrates 40 years with a book of poetry." Coalesce has now published "Where Our Palms Rest," a collection of poems by four local writers -- Beverly Boyd of Los Osos, Carol Alma McPhee of San Luis Obispo, Joann Rusch of Los Osos and Bonnie Young of Arroyo Grande.

Coalesce will be holding a reception and book-signing on Sunday, Oct 20, 1-3 p.m. in the Chapel behind the store. The bookstore is located 845 Main Street in Morro Bay. The authors will be on hand to autograph your book. Books are $16.
So, support your Local Poets and celebrate Coalesce as a [actual real paper and print] publisher -- an amazing undertaking in this e-book age -- and support one of the few independent bookstores still standing (Los Osos' Volumes of Pleasure is another), and head down to Coalesce to get your autographed copy.
