Live Blogging! Ah! We’re complete liars!
Well actually the bigger issue is somehow the AWP Conference is in a hotel that does not have wifi everywhere—I mean, we’d even be willing to pay for it. So I’m going to try and summarize yesterday for you and hopefully we will figure out a system that can include ‘Erratic But Frequent Blogging from AWP Chicago.’
We arrived. Cabbed it over to AWP where we found out that we’d been left off the AWP Map, so if you are trying to find us we are in the Southwest Hall, table 782. We also didn’t have a sign made for us, but Luis handled it like a pro and made us lots of good-looking handouts advertising our location.
And our location is great because we are surrounded by some of the nicest people at AWP who helped us draw a great picture of a video camera to advertise ‘Poets and Puppets!’ So far Bernadette is the hit of AWP but I think Ed and Camille will get some reading time today—they are feeling less camera shy this morning.
4 rooms of bookfair, and 8 floors of panels, readings and discussions…it is a shame we can’t live blog because even after writing the last three paragraphs, I feel like I haven’t even begun.
