Friday night during AWP: Bloof + Saturnalia

I'm pleased to be co-hosting this one, with Saturnalia Books publisher Henry Israeli. We asked Rebecca Loudon to join us, so she's bringing her violin and some poems too. The Jewelbox Theater is a gorgeously restored 1927 screening room attached to an underground speakeasy, in Belltown. (Read about its history—from Jimmy Stewart to contemporary burlesque—here.) It's an easy walk from the conference. Hope to see you there (or somewhere).

*Please note: Rendezvous is a multispace venue. We are in the Jewelbox Theater, not the Grotto, not the Red Velvet Lounge. All share the same address, and other events are happening simultaneously.*
