AWP in NYC this weekend

Mon 28 Jan 2008 - Filed under: Not a Journal., | Leave a Comment | Posted by: Gavin

We’ll be at the Associated Writing Programs Conference and Bookfair this coming Thursday to Saturday (Hilton New York & Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers on 6th Ave. and 53rd St.).

Here are a few items of interest and so on (some of this info is also on our calendar). The conference is sold out but the book fair is open to the public Saturday 8.30 – 5.30. If you’re in NYC (or nearby) we highly recommend you drop by—not to see us (but sure, come by and say hi to Jed and Gavin and Kelly), but because this will be the biggest small press fair this year this side of the Mississippi. While you might see some of the same people at the Brooklyn Book Fair, there will be a ton of people and presses you’d never normally see. (And just because the bookfair opens at the cruel and unusual time of 8.30 AM doesn’t mean you have to be there then, wait until at least 10 or 11 for the maximum literary crowd experience.)

First thing: we are taking down boxes of returns (most like-new condition) and selling them at 1/2 price. That is 50% off the price agreed upon by the oligopoly of Small Beer Press and Small Beer World Domination, Inc.

There are about a million events going on, a hundred thousand interesting panels, a few bars, and not enough time. See you there—

Thu., Jan 31, 7 PM
Ira Glass Discussion & Signing

    Come now Fred, what could be worth leaving NYC on a cold damp January weekend?
