Our party will be at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday 3 February at Medaterra, 2614 Connecticut Avenue NW, a restaurant within walking distance of the Marriott. This event is free and open to the public. The readers, all poets and prose writers from upstreet number six, will be Mark Halliday, David Jauss, Jay Kauffmann, Maureen Sherbondy, Robin Underdahl, and Michelle Yasmine Valladares. upstreet Editor/Publisher Vivian Dorsel will emcee the festivities.
Following the reading, there will be an opportunity for authors to sign copies of upstreet number six, or their own books, which will also be available for purchase. Light refreshments will be provided. Come help us celebrate AWP 2011 in Washington—and don’t forget to visit upstreet’s table (#C10) in the Bookfair. On Saturday, the final day of the Conference, admission to the Bookfair will be open to the public at no charge.
