Elsa Dorfman

WBUR Obituary

The Grolier mourns Elsa Dorfman long time friend of the Grolier Poetry Book Shop. We will miss seeing her in Harvard Square where she could be often be seen at Cafe Pamplona, and of course at the Grolier where she used to drop by occasionally for a chat. Elsa’s photos are a part of the Grolier’s history. Elsa was a friend of all three owners of the Grolier: Gordon Cairnie, Louisa Solano, and of course of Ifeanyi and Carol Menkiti who knew her for many years. She was a friend of many great American poets including: Alan Ginsberg, Robert Creeley, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and local poets Gail Mazur, Lloyd Schwartz, and Robert Pinsky to name just a few.
