Letter: Grant helped create anthology

Last year, the Aspen Poets’ Society was a first-time grant recipient from the Thrift Shop of Aspen. Its financial support helped launch our first anthology, “A Democracy of Poets of the Roaring Fork Valley and Beyond.” The book proved so successful that within the first nine months of its release, our supply was nearly depleted, and we recently took delivery of a second printing. In addition, “A Democracy” was just named one of three finalists for a Colorado Book Award – Anthology. Our book sales and this honor far exceeded our expectations and have helped the Aspen Poets’ Society to move forward with new projects and accomplish desired goals. This month, we also were fortunate to be awarded a generous grant from the thrift shop. This additional financial support coupled with the grant committee’s sentiments of praise and encouragement will keep our momentum going as we expand our activities in the community. Priceless!

Many thanks to the Thrift Shop of Aspen.
