It's "home from AWP with bounteous pictures to upload" evening, and facebook is being wonky. The horror! So here are a few highlights. The full scoop to come later. I will say that it was my favorite AWP ever, and that I had a total blast. Thank you to all the folks who bought Akron Series in Poetry books, and copies of Barn Owl Review #2! Our sales were unprecedented, and we are so appreciative.
Dorking out with Eric Wasserman and BOR #2
Torturing The Colt while he sold BORs.
Akron Series in Poetry authors get to ride to their readings in style (on the #22 bus with John Gallaher).
The Akron Series in Poetry table was bedecked with Mardi Gras beads thanks to Alison Pelegrin.
Here's Alison signing Big Muddy River of Stars.
With Akron Series in Poetry author Heather Derr-Smith, author of The Bride Minaret.
Hanging with Gary McDowell, who always smells so good.
After the diode/Anti- reading with Jay Robinson and Noah Falck. Thanks to the TypewriterGirls for their spectacular negligee escort and supreme dance moves.
And finally, here I am with the sign after we cleared out. What a great conference! I'm not quite ready for it to be over (in more ways than one).
