In addition to readings, panels, workshops, and opportunities to build community across barriers this year, we also want to showcase the significant role of publishers and those who bring us the kinds of writing Split This Rock celebrates: impassioned, visionary, and truth-telling. And we want to bring the critically important work of social change groups to poets, activists, and the public.
With this in mind, we're introducing a Social Change Book Fair to Split This Rock 2010. The book fair will be an opportunity to further our mission of getting the critical work of socially engaged poets, writers, organizations, progressive presses, literary magazines, and independent newspapers to our festival participants.
The Social Change Book Fair will take place on Saturday, March 13, from 9:30 am to 4 pm at the Thurgood Marshall Center for Service and Heritage (the old 12th Street Y) at 1816 12th Street NW, Washington, DC. Split This Rock workshops and panel discussions will be taking place in the same building, ensuring plenty of foot traffic.
The Book Fair will be free and open to the general public and we will promote it widely.
Book Fair table registration begins at only $50. Download the book fair registration form to reserve your table. An extra fee applies if you register after February 15.
