And we're off.

Please check the Bloof Blog for updates throughout the tour. We'll also be doing some reports from the road as guests on the Best American Poetry Blog.

And finally, please note that if you order a book from bloofbooks.com in the next ten days, it will probably not ship until the 24th. The whole staff will be in the rental car.

Hope to see you out there. Do say hi!
