AWP Chicago Recap

Lookout Books was in Chicago for AWP last week! We were so excited to be part of such a great experience.

First, we flew in and were welcomed to cold, cold Chicago. Turns out the Windy City is aptly named. But no fear, we were cozy in the book fair at tables N5/N6 with UNCW’s MFA program, Ecotone and Chautauqua! So many great people came by to see us and buy books, and Edith Pearlman was there signing copies of Binocular Vision!

Thursday night we shared drinks and laughs with Orion, Milkweed, and Ecotone at Bar Louie. Our very own Vodka Pearlmans stole the show!

After a couple more days in the book fair, we flew home happy and with ten fewer boxes of books! We were glad to see all those Lookout Books, stickers, and notebooks find happy homes.

See y’all next year,

Sally, Lookout Intern
