Great Lakes Commonwealth of Letters (GLCL) is a Writers' Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with a simple, but vital mission: to encourage, promote, and celebrate the literary endeavors of writers in the Great Lakes region.
We are delighted to offer our second Poetry in Conversation event. Join Keith Taylor, Judith Alexander Brice, and Charlie Brice on Wednesday, June 3, from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. right here at Great Lakes Commonwealth of Letters.
National Poetry Month is over, but our VERSES ON VIEW campaign can be celebrated on any day of the year.
The Proust Questionnaire
When the author Marcel Proust was a teenager, he responded to a questionnaire in an English-language confessional album; the questions were intended to reveal the tastes and aspirations of the respondent. More recently, a version of the questionnaire has become a back-page favorite featuring celebrities in Vanity Fair magazine. We think it works well for the literati of Michigan, too.
