While I am always a little tepid about AWP I am actually really looking forward to it this year since it is in Seattle. I’ve never been to Seattle and love a good excuse to take a trip. Plus New York has been such a drag with all the snow, and work has been such a drag with all its work, so it will be good to get out of town for a while. I’m reading twice while I’m there. Once on Thursday, February 27 for Brooklyn Arts and again on Saturday, March 1 for Bloof.
But before AWP I get to go see Angel Olsen. Her new record comes out on Tuesday and I’ve been listening to it non-stop on NPR First Listen all week.
