Photos from our Portland, ME Launch Event
After the publication of ISSUE 1::SOIL
, we gathered in Hardwick, Vermont at the Galaxy Bookshop
and in Portland, Maine at Longfellow Books
to celebrate the launch of the magazine. Contributors from around both locales (as well as Ashley English, who traveled all the way from North Carolina with her family!) joined us to read from their pieces. Well wishers traveled from all around to hear them and to visit with us about Taproot
. In Portland, after the event at Longfellow, we had a terrific party at 158 Pickett Street Cafe
(they kept the cafe open for us after their normal Sunday crowd had already departed!), where we spent some time getting to know our contributors in person as well as a few folks from the event who had tagged along. Here's a belated, but still warm, "Thank You!" to all who attended, to our contributors and to the bookstore staff.
