upstreet is having a party--
and you’re invited

upstreet will host an off-site reading and celebration during the 2013 AWP Conference, which will take place at the Hynes Convention Center, 900 Boylston Street, Boston, from March 6-9.

Our party will be from 6:30-9:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 7, in the Boston Public Library’s Map Room CafĂ©, 700 Boylston Street, which is two blocks away from the Convention Center. The readers, all poets and prose writers from upstreet number eight, will be Peter Brown, Jeana Steele Burton, Alan Feldman, Jeffrey Harrison, David Jauss, and Jodi Paloni. upstreet Editor/Publisher Vivian Dorsel will emcee the festivities. Admission is free.

Following the reading, there will be an opportunity for authors to sign copies of upstreet number eight, or their own books, which will also be available for purchase. Wine, beer, soft drinks, and hors d’oeuvres will be provided.

Come help us celebrate AWP 2013 in Boston—and don’t forget to visit upstreet’s table (#K18) in the Bookfair. On Saturday, the final day of the Conference, admission to the Bookfair will be open to the public at no charge.
