Paul Allen certainly has a lot to bark about these days.

Allen, CEO of Woof Gang Bakery — an upscale pet store that sells treats, chews and pet accessories — opened Savannah’s first location in City Market just before St. Patrick’s Day and already has four other locations in the works. The newest location will open Aug. 7 at 236 Drayton Street.

Deep “was founded in 2008 to address the detrimental effects of poverty on literacy in Savannah.” In the years since, almost 2,500 kids have participated in three-month writing programs, and Deep has published more than 60 anthologies of work by the young writers.

If you care about literacy in the Savannah community and haven’t checked out one of Deep’s public events, you should attend the next Deep Speaks! anthology launch.
