Last week I mentioned that team Imaginary Book Club was hitting up the annual AWP Conference in Washington, DC, and boy did we! It was such an interesting and fun conference, we’re officially committing to head out to Tampa next year for AWP.
We’re also kicking off a new effort at IBC – team #NoBanNoWall. Through this effort, we’re going to kick up the number of reviews of books about or written by authors from the countries affected by recent regulations. We’ll also be featuring books about immigration stories. If you’re interested in joining in as a reviewer, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org! It’ll take some time to get going, but I hope you enjoy the series!
This week I’ll be power reading Kindred! I know a lot of y’all have finished, so feel free to discuss in the comments (no spoilers!), but I made myself a rule of not reading it before bed, and I’m lagging behind!
