Lit Bit: Have a Shot of Bourbon & Lit on Us

Filed in Gather Travel Essential by on February 3, 2011 0 Comments


In conjunction with the AWP Conference, Atticus Books, a participating independent publisher, is hosting a spirited reading event Friday night at Bourbon in DC.  The “Atticus Pinch” reading features lively readings from several Atticus authors, including Steve Zimmer, Tommy Zurhellen, John Minichillo, and yours truly.

Not to mention one of DC’s finest selections of bourbon, and other great drinks to boot.


Visit the link below and RSVP now and the first drink is on Atticus.  Visit the Atticus table at the AWP Conference (K34 in the Exhibit Hall) for another chance for a free drink ticket.


Or, just show up!  You’ll have to buy your own bourbon, but the lit is still free and certainly just as fine.
