AWP is crazy, and loud—each time I’ve gone, I’ve managed to go hoarse by the third day. Below are a few events I’ll be participating in, as well as events that I recommend because they will be awesome.
Wednesday, 6:30-9 pm, I’ll be reading for Denver Quarterly along with some really amazing poets.
Thursday, 8-10 pm, I’ll be at the Sarabande Books roaring 20s party.
Thursday, 7-10 pm, for a brief time I’ll be watching some awesome poets such as Jeff Alessandrelli, Ralph Angel, and Joy Katz at this event.
Friday, 12-1 pm, I’ll be signing copies of Thought That Nature at the Sarabande Books table.
Friday, 4-5 pm, Rob Schlegel will be signing copies of January Machine at the Four Way Books table.
Friday, 5-6:30 pm, Christopher Kondrich and Adam Clay, among others, will be reading at this event.
Friday, 6:30-9 pm, Brad Tice will be reading at the Seattle Art Museum.
Saturday, 4-6 pm, chapbook makers Dikembe Press, The Catenary Press, and Poor Claudia will be hosting a great event.
Also, Nick Courtright will be reading Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, though I don’t yet have details for those events. And Michael Earl Craig, Mary Ruefle, Laura Jensen, Bret Shepard, James Knippen, Grace Bauer, and so many other wonderful poets will be in the house, too.
