On April 17, NPR ran a story by Cindy Carpien, “A Poem Store Open For Business, In The Open Air,” that introduces Oakland, California, poet Zach Houston and his sidewalk Poem Store, open for business since 2007! Click on the article name to read or listen to the NPR story. (And before you set up shop on a nearby street corner or start busking poems at the farmer’s market, you might check to see whether you need a vendor permit.)
