University of Nebraska Press fans in Seattle, San Francisco and New York will have a chance to meet a UNP author frequently mentioned on this blog (and in many wine columns) this week. Robert Camuto, author of Corkscrewed: Adventures in the New French Wine Country, will be in Seattle tomorrow (Feb. 17), in San Francisco Feb. 18 and 19, and in New York Feb. 21 through 25. For information on where you can see him (and taste some of the wines he describes in his book), visit his web site.
Moving on, The Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) had its conference last week in Chicago. Here’s Rachel Toor, author of Personal Record and upcoming Bison title The Pig and I, in action at the conference.
Lastly, did you check out the video posted Friday of Ted Kooser reading from Valentines? If not, check it out now ... the link expires tomorrow.
Happy Presidents' Day everyone!
