AWP Recap

Now that we’ve had some time to recover from AWP 2013, here’s a little photo recap of our time in Boston. We had several great panels, including a tribute to Edith Pearlman, a talk on successful indie publishing, and our own four debut Lookout authors reading together for the first time. They also signed books at our booth and got to talk with all our loving readers.

An Evening with Edith Pearlman and Jessica Treadway

Haley Booksellers and Stellina Restaurant in Boston are hosting an evening with authors Edith Pearlman and Jessica Treadway next Wednesday, Sept. 19th!

Edith Pearlman’s recent book,Binocular Vision, has won various awards, including the 2011 National Book Critics Circle Award. Author of more than 250 works of short fiction and non-fiction, her pieces have appeared in national magazines, literary journals, anthologies and on-line publications.

Jessica Treadway’s book, Please Come Back To Me, won the 2009 Flannery O’Connor Prize for Short Fiction and is just being issued in paperback. She is also the author of Absent Without Leave and Other Stories and the novel And Give You Peace, which Booklist called “a stunning exploration of a family’s devastating loss”. Jessica teaches writing and literature at Emerson College in Boston.
