I'll have a post up with my Friday night AWP after party picks later today, but I want to remind you that publishers and the city of Seattle worked hard to make sure that the AWP Bookfair will be open to the public tomorrow from 8:30 am to 6 pm. You really ought to go.

Go look at the floor plan for the book fair. This is a staggering number of small publishers. I can attest to the high quality of many of those publishers, but others are complete unknowns. There will be books there you can't find in any bookstore in Seattle, or on Amazon.com. That's incredibly exciting. I've already said that Seattle is a city that passionately loves its bookstores. Tomorrow brings a one-of-a-kind bookstore to the reading public for just one day, and it's absolutely free to check out. I'll see you there.
