Default Come say "hi" to me in Chicago!

Going to AWP next week? Come say "hi!" to me at the bookfair! I'm signing books at the BorderSenses/Papagayo table (S3) at 3:00pm on Friday, March 2nd at the Hilton in Chicago. I'll be signing copies of my latest chapbook, The Garden of Dresses, which is set for release that same day.

I promise not to try and swindle you into buying books. I cannot promise, however, that I won't hug you. I'm a hugger. You've been warned

It's my first AWP, so nervousness galore. Hope to see a few friendly faces!

Katie

Katie,

Just found this post, and thought of you. I'm still scanning, but it looks like both practical and amusing advice...

Thanks for the well wishes, everyone! Gosh the AWP schedule looks really overwhelming. I certainly intend to make the most of my time in Chicago. So many panels to see, and the book fair looks really crazy with all those journals and presses...

I'm also moderating a panel Saturday afternoon titled Border Bodies: Womanhood in Verse. It might sound fancy and academic, but we just plan to read poems. Because that's more fun than talking!
