On April 24 and 25, the New York Center for Independent Publishing is sponsoring the fifth annual New York Round Table Writers' Conference. The conference takes place at the beautiful building of the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen, site of a notable PEN triumph.
Wally Lamb, best-selling writer and also a great champion for writers in prison, will give the keynote address. PEN America favorites Soft Skull Press (currently in the midst of big changes) and Tin House will also be there, along with many other publications, writers, agents, and literary organizations.
Check it out.
PS. And tonight, go see Maud Newton, Lizzie Skurnick, and Kate Christensen at Housing Works.
