The next time you’re in virtual downtown, swing by Bill Ectric’s Place. Have cup of coffee or a cocktail. Read a book, buy a book, talk about books, and maybe even get booked, if the thought police get shook. Hang out with authors and artists, reporters and radicals, columnists and characters, poets and punks, musicians and more.
