Last year I had so much fun bringing Vermin on the Mount out to Denver for AWP I decided to do it again. This year's AWP destination has special significance because not only will it be the first VOTM east of the Mississippi, but Washington D.C. is home turf for me. I grew up across the Potomac in Falls Church, Virginia, and have lots of fond memories of going to Georgetown throughout high school and college (the drinking age was 18 and everyone had fake IDs). Anyhoodles, here's what you need to know:
WHO: Kim Chinquee, Roy Kesey, Amber Sparks, Lindsay Hunter, Nicolette Kittinger, Tom Williams, Al Heathcock & Scott McClanahan
WHAT: A night of irreverent readings, an extraordinary raffle, and a shitload of bad jokes aimed at embarrassing my mother sponsored by the fine folks at Annalemma Magazine.
WHEN: Friday, Feb 4 at 8pm
WHERE: Mie N Yu 3125 M Street in Georgetown
WHY: Ask our poster artist Goodloe Byron. He know.
Check back over the next few weeks with exclusive interviews with the readers, special offers and discounts for AWP participants, and merch to be given away.
When you plan your AWP festivities and frolics, make Vermin on the Mount at Mie N Yu on Friday night your first, last and only stop.
