This is the story of sitting at two tables six months apart. The first was at my coffeehouse last October, where my friend Wendy and I decided to do something for readers and writers. The second was at a restaurant in April, where our board dined with Margaret Atwood at the end of a successful Book and Author Festival that drew thousands to Downtown Green Bay. It's lovely doing personal projects on your own, or working with your spouse, friend, child, mentor, or former grade school teacher. But at some point, you just might need a posse to take on bigger ideas. If you want to change your community, you can't do it alone.
