Show Notes

Hi, and welcome to episode #71!

Today I’m chatting with poet Glenn Shay, who is also a bookseller at Book Barn. Glenn has worked in the library of a cancer clinic and in the French department of a foreign-language bookshop, washed dishes in the Scottish Highlands, gone to pilgrim’s mass in Santiago, and eaten good tex-mex in Chengdu. He has read his poems in local libraries and shops and venues in Dublin, Paris, and Verona. He is the author of two collections of poetry: The Pilgrims of Tombelaine, and Find a Place The Could Pass for Home, published by Salmon Poetry. 

Book Barn is situated in Niantic, Connecticut, and carries over 500,000 gently used books, spread over multiple locations. You can pop into the main barn, spend time with the Book Barn cats, browse row after row of books, or relax in their beautiful gardens.
