CANCELED: AWP 2020 | Copper Canyon Press & Lambda Literary Showcase
March 6 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Updated March 3, 2020: Please note that this event has been canceled.
After much deliberation, the team at Copper Canyon Press has decided not to attend the 2020 AWP conference in San Antonio. We made this difficult call out of an abundance of caution after consulting with each staff member who was scheduled to attend the conference, as well as numerous Copper Canyon poets and fellow exhibitors. You can read our full statement here.
Our friends at Lambda Literary will still be in attendance, and we encourage all conference-goers to support them by visiting them at bookfair booth #1420 and attending their other events.
Copper Canyon Press and Lambda Literary present an AWP20 off-site reading and queer celebration featuring the launch of special guest Mark Bibbins’s new book 13th Balloon and Lambda Literary’s Emerge: A Collection of Literary Work from the 2019 Lambda Literary Fellows. Happy hour refreshments to follow the reading. Our line-up includes:
- Mark Bibbins
- Alison C. Rollins
- Jericho Brown
- Kayleb Rae Candrilli
