The 2013 AWP conference is this week (starting on Wednesday).
Normally, I would be packing my bags and stocking the fridge for my family. However, this week the conference is a mere 30 miles from my home. You would think this would make it easier for me to get to all of the panels and events. Instead, it makes it more difficult as I remain active and present in my daily life, which includes caring for my son.
As such, I’m not going to be much of a presence at the conference, but I’m sure you will all bravely carry on without me.
With that said, I will be at the bookfair on Saturday. In fact, I have two signings on Saturday, March 9th:
I will be signing Echolocation at the Engine Books table from 10-12ish
I will be signing I Am Holding Your Hand at the PANK table from 1-3ish
I really hope to see you there.
p.s. My advice from last year still holds: do NOT drink that shot of tequila when it is offered to you (this advice is especially true if you are over age 40).
