Small publishing company turns heads

ST. PAUL (AP) — For a publishing company that considered it a big success to sell 2,500 copies of an anthology of contemporary European poetry, it was a new experience to get urgent calls from the Barnes & Noble corporate purchasing department:
That’s what happened at Graywolf Press when Barack Obama picked poet Elizabeth Alexander, a Graywolf author since 2001, to recite a poem at his inauguration — putting her in such hallowed company as Robert Frost and Maya Angelou. The St. Paul-based publisher is publishing 100,000 copies of Alexander’s inaugural poem, by far the biggest print run in its 35-year history.
