We kept a lively account of our #AWP16 activities on social media – even if don’t have accounts, you can check our antics here on Twitter and here on Facebook.

March 31: We celebrated 40 years of RHINO and kicked off our “40 Readings in 40 Cities” initiative with what else but poetry and cake!  Hygge Bakery in downtown Los Angeles turned out to be a perfect venue for a poetry reading party.
