Snapshots from AWP 2009 in Chicago

UT Press and Tampa Review were on display at the 2009 AWP conference in Chicago. It was a hectic three days in the basement of the downtown Hilton. We hosted several author signings, each of which brought new and old friends around to our tables for good conversation, hugs, and smiles.

Here are some snapshots from that memorable weekend, briefly identified, from top to bottom:
