A2: Books

Poets & Writers magazine published a profile of Ann Arbor-based Dzanc Books, a venture founded by Steve Gillis and Dan Wickett. Gillis is also founder of the nonprofit 826 Michigan: “There’s really no purpose in life except helping other people. That’s the bottom line. I mean, there really isn’t. That’s how I look at it. I don’t understand when people don’t think that way. You know, I got lucky early on with investments. I live in a comfortable house. I could live in a mansion, but I don’t. I save my pennies and I do charitable work instead.” [Source]
