Dear friends attending AWP next week, let me invite you to the panel I’ll be participating on, “The Art of the Book Review.” I would be attending this one even if I weren’t a panelist, just to hear what Darcey Steinke, Michael Klein,Craig Teicher have to say on the subject. Thanks to the brilliant Tony Leuzzifor organizing and moderating the event. Honored to be included in such smart company. Please join us!
F217: The Art of the Book Review
Room 607, Washington State Convention Center, Level 6
Friday, February 28, 2014
1:30 pm to 2:45 pm
Thousands of books are published each year. We are lead to many of them by engaging, knowing reviews. A well-written review will investigate the mysteries deep reading affords, and it will please as well as inform, because it has style. The five widely published writers/critics on this panel will discuss the review as a genre in its own right, a unique artistic form that contributes to the formation of taste, raises the level of public discourse, and establishes critical reputation.
