AWP 2016: Travel to LA

A list of items (figurative and literal) your illustrious Sweet reader/blogger has brought to AWP, in order of importance:

Electronics and Wallet

Chapbooks and Prints

Extra Space in Bag for More Books

Apple Charger (3x)

New Lipstick and Emotional Fortitude


Ipod (4th Generation, with clickwheel) and Headphones


People Skills


Square-Shaped Business Cards

Safe travels, all! We’ll be wandering around The Last Bookstore tonight and will see you at the book fair tomorrow morning (*a collective sigh of relief from East Coast contingent for whom 9am feels like 12pm*).
