Tomorrow I will land in Chicago around 1:00 p.m.  Here are some things I will be doing at AWP:

Picking up Legs Get Led Astray books at Time Out Chicago Magazine headquarters! They were delivered this morning!

On Wednesday night I’m going to  go to the AWP kick-off party and then a small event called Tin Housed at a condo with this view!

On Thursday morning I am planning on going to this panel:

Thursday, March 1st, 10:30-11:45am
AWP Conference at the Chicago Hilton
“Selling Out Everyone You Love: The Ethics of Writing Nonfiction,”
panel discussion with Krista Bremer, Cheryl Strayed Lee Martin, Stephen Elliott, and Brian Doyle, about writing about others in creative nonfiction.

Then I have two readings, here and here. I am the last reader at my first reading and I am the first reader at my second reading. Oy! In between the readings I’m going to try to go to The Rumpus’s off-site event  where Cheryl Strayed, Stephen Elliott, and more Rumpus people will be reading.
