"Susan and Gene Flores created the little house to honor a request for poems. The couple built the the hut in 2007 for an art show in Stockbridge. The idea was to create a place where people could write and hang up your writings and read what others had left."
"Susan Flores says, "We had no idea if in fact anyone would go in and write anything but over the summer in Stockbridge there was over 2,000 things written." - ver a notícia na CBS 3 Springfield.
A ideia pegou e a "Poetry Hut" foi sendo montada de cidade em cidade e os poemas que daí resultam organizados em livros que são oferecidos gratuitamente aos habitantes. - ver aqui o vídeo.
