A few months ago, I sat down to a dinner and interview with Nick Demske, a librarian, curator and poet in Racine, Wisconsin. We spoke about his take on a library’s place in the world of contemporary small press poetry and fiction, as well as his thoughts on cross-pollination.
So Nick, since you are both a librarian and a poet, do you spend most of your time in the poetry section of the library?
Yes, poetry section, all the way. I also wind up in the feminist and the language sections a lot.
