2020 Bookfair Stages

Host a Reading or Panel at AWP’s Bookfair

The stages are set in the midst of the exhibit hall bustle, providing your organization with great visibility and foot traffic, as well as the opportunity to engage a diverse literary audience. These unique and dynamic venues are perfect for a book or magazine launch, readings, performance and slam events, celebrations, and tributes.

Reservations are made on a first-come, first-served basis.
