I am sort of dreading AWP this year, maybe because John is not coming, robbing me of a default, neutral person to be with that requires little to no social exertion. (Part of the reason I go to AWP is to hang out with writer friends I don't see very often, but the high concentration of such people turns it into the social Olympics.) Also, everyone I know seems to have their own reading at the same time as my reading (below). How long before AWP is just 8,000 private readings, only readers, no audience?
N-E-wayz, I don't have too many obligations, so most of the time I'll either be wandering around the book fair or off-site procuring sushi and alcohol. Otherwise, look for me here:
The Hyacinth Girl table (T4)

Kathy and I will be signing copies of our chapbook, The Kind of Beauty That Has Nowhere to Go.
Black Ocean table (R23)

The Highline (210 Broadway Ave E.)

Free off-site reading. Very cool lineup. Details below and on Facebook.
And, of course, my books will be for sale at the Black Ocean and Birds LLC tables all day every day (R23 and R21 respectively). Say hi!
