Save Beyond Baroque!
That's been the rallying cry around the blogosphere ever since news trickled out that Beyond Baroque, the beloved literary center in Venice, may lose its lease.
LAist comes through with an action plan, local journalist (and no slouch in the poetry department himself) TJ Sullivan offers an impassioned defense of the place at LA Observed, and Carolyn Kellogg shakes her head in disbelief at her litblog, Pinky's Paperhaus.
According to a letter from Richard Modiano, one of Beyond Baroque's board members, lease negotiations are ongoing.
