Joe Wilkins

"Joe Wilkins has a big, true, highway-running American voice. When you see a new book of his, you should celebrate. Just buy it, put down the window, and let the music blow back your hair. It's nothing but alive." – Luis Alberto Urrea

AWP in Boston

I’ll be headed to the 2013 AWP Conference and Bookfair in Boston here in a few days for four days of book signings, readings, listening to panel presentations, catching up with friends, and wandering in and out of various pubs. If you’re in town, and you’re interested, here’s my event schedule:

Thursday, March 7, 2-3 pm, Bookfair, White Pine Press Table
Author Signing, Notes From the Journey Westward, Joe Wilkins

Thursday, March 7, 7 pm, Emerald Necklace Conservancy, 125 The Fenway
Wild Lives / Raucous Pens: Readings from Ecotone, Hawk & Handsaw, and
Terrain.org
Hosted by the Emerald Necklace Conservancy and located at the
Conservancy’s historic Shattuck Visitor’s Center on the Fenway, just a
15-minute walk from the Hynes Convention Center. Emceed by Kathryn
Miles and Simmons Buntin and featuring literary readings by David
Gessner, Sheryl St. Germain, Derek Sheffield, Cynthia Huntington, Joe
Wilkins, Lauren Eggert-Crowe, Hannah Kreitzer, and Bill Roorbach. Beer
and wine will be served in this cozy (you might say, intimate) cottage
setting.

Friday, March 8 3-4:15, Room 208, Level 2
F238. New Writing from Orion. (Jennifer Sahn, Pam Houston, Chris
Dombrowski, Joe Wilkins, Tania James) The Orion editors believe that
people are a part of nature and that the environment is everything
that is—which translates into a broad mandate for a literary magazine,
allowing Orion to publish the best writing at the intersection of
ecology and culture. Join us as four recent contributors read and
discuss their essays and short stories from Orion.

Saturday, March 9, 4:30-5:45 pm, Room 309, Level 3
S260. Counterpoint Press Reading. (Dan Smetanka, David McGlynn, Dana
Johnson, Susan Sherman, and Joe Wilkins) A reading by prose writers
who have had books published in 2012 by Counterpoint Press. Two
memoirists and two novelists read work spanning a range of landscapes,
time periods, and subjects. The editor who acquired the books
moderates and discusses what drew him to each title, while the authors
themselves read and reflect on their experience of working with one of
the nation’s largest and most respected independent literary
publishers.
