Eight-hundred years after Rumi was born in the greater Persian Empire, in the area that is now Afghanistan or Tajakistan, three American poets, including Block Island’s Lisa Starr, celebrated his life and work in a benefit for the Connecticut Food Bank, “Poems for Bread,” at Yale University in New Haven, Conn., Sunday.

Remember the lovelorn country lass who was torn between the farmer and the poet, uncertain whether to marry for butter or for verse? At Atticus Bookstore Café (1082 Chapel St., New Haven, 203-776-4040) this month, you don't have to choose. To celebrate National Poetry Month, every Friday in April they're giving away a loaf of bread to anyone courageous enough to stand up and read a poem.
Noah Charney wants to be an art thief’s worst enemy. His itinerary reads like James Bond. Today, New Haven, next week, perhaps Slovenia, London, Rome, The Netherlands — all in pursuit of educating the public about and making a dent in art theft, a $6 billion industry that operates below the radar of what most people consider a pressing crime statistic.
The only thing missing from the renovated Atticus Bookstore/Cafe in New Haven is a bank of treadmills. Books offer calorie-free nourishment for the mind and soul, but the same cannot be said for chocolate truffles, fruit tarts, oversized cookies and freshly baked bread. With a new pastry chef on board and an expanded menu of desserts, artfully displayed across from the entrance, cafe visitors might find themselves in need of serious exercise once they've indulged.
Atticus Bookstore and Cafe, a 31-year fixture of the city's downtown community, will close Saturday for three weeks of extensive renovations. When Atticus reopens, the space will allow for improved takeout service, while retaining the same number of cafe seats. Evening hours will be extended to midnight, and the variety of desserts will be increased.
National Poetry Month is drawing to a close, but local poetry readings continue until the end of April, including one reading of note at the Atticus Bookstore Cafe in New Haven.
You've heard of singing for your supper. This is about rhyming for your bread. Every Friday this month, which is National Poetry Month, the Atticus Bookstore and Cafe in New Haven has been inviting poets to recite a poem aloud — theirs or someone else’s — in exchange for a free loaf of bread.
Some performers sing for their supper.
There are 16 art galleries in New Haven and dozens of smaller alternative spaces. New Haven abounds with food for the body as well as the soul, with good restaurants near many of the galleries. For lunch, there is the Atticus Bookstore Café at 1082 Chapel Street. The walnut salad with apple slices, served with multigrain bread and a bowl of black bean soup, costs about $12.
Free Bread For Poems. Of course, you'll have to go to New Haven.
The Atticus Bookstore is celebrating National Poetry Month by offering a free loaf, courtesy of Chabaso Bakery, to anyone who recites a poem out loud on Fridays on April 6, 13, 20 and 27.
The nighttime gathering begins about a quarter to 10. The scavengers circle nonchalantly, as if to avoid looking too eager to pounce. No, these are not vultures picking at a carcass. These are college students going after bread. Free bread, that is. Freshly baked artisan bread.

Little by little, the cafe inside Atticus Bookstore in New Haven has swallowed more and more of the space. It began with a couple of tables, a counter and display cases in 1981, when the cafe opened. There are now 20 tables occupying about a third of the store, and according to Caleb Fraser, an assistant manager, plans are slowly evolving for even more cafe space.
What is the best that Connecticut has to offer? Crab cakes and clam chowder, smoothies, apple pie, artisan bread and great wines are among the entrees at Best of Connecticut parties to benefit the March of Dimes at the Connecticut Convention Center.
''YOU have to go to New York to find good bread,'' was a mantra expressed for decades by newcomers to Connecticut, and it is still heard occasionally today, despite a lot of evidence to the contrary. The best sources of fresh-baked breads can be the bakeries themselves. If you arrive early at Stroble's in Kent, or Colchester Bakery in Colchester, or Judie's European Bakery or Chabaso in New Haven, the smell of fresh-baked bread can be intoxicating.
Atticus Bookstore Cafe in New Haven has its own bakery, Chabaso, which supplies the delicious muffins, scones, sweet rolls, breads and desserts to this bustling cafe. Soups and sandwiches are the mainstay here, and I recently savored a robust white bean and vegetable soup and a cup of real Rhode Island clam chowder, full of clams and vegetables. A good deal is the $6.95 tab for a cup of soup and half sandwich. Mine was ham and melted Cheddar on excellent focaccia; the half was enormous.
Le Grand Marche European Market will be open Saturdays through Sept. 13 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on College and Chapel streets in New Haven. Oil paintings, antique lithographs and engravings, herbal aromatherapy supplies, books (Atticus had a large number of children's and adult books at 50 percent off), and fresh breads from Great Harvest and Chabaso bakeries attracted not only window-shoppers but buyers.
Chabaso is proud to announce our participation in the first annual Closer to Free bike ride, a fundraiser for the Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven. Chabaso will be fielding ten riders for this event, which takes place on September 10, 2011. Click on the brochure below for more details.
Sandwiches, served on a choice of a baguette or focaccia, baked by Chabaso Bakery in New Haven, include a side of oil-dressed potato salad. Don't pass up the Tuscan tuna salad, bound with olive oil rather than mayo and studded with cannelloni beans and bits of onion, or the mildly seasoned, melt-in-your-mouth meatball and tomato sauce sandwich. A Roman vegetarian sandwich of grilled eggplant, roasted tomatoes and red peppers and basil leaves is light-tasting yet filling.
