I’ll also be attending a number of other social events — including a reception at the Irish Embassy on Thursday evening (how cool is that?!), a couple Orion gatherings, some off-site readings here and there, lunch with an old friend, and a kind of dinner/Super Bowl party with my cousin John Buntin, writer for Governing magazine and author of L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America’s Most Seductive City, plus more of our family members.
And then I’ll be visiting Rockville Town Square, as I plan to feature it as the UnSprawl case study in the next issue of Terrain.org.
Whew! That’s a full schedule — but a good one, I hope.
If you’re at AWP, or otherwise in Washington, DC, that week, give me a holler, eh?
