Since then I've tried to get to more of their events and have attended, on average, about two or three a year. I'll be attending this coming Monday to hear someone for the first time: Dagoberto Gilb. He'll be joined by Benjamin Percy.
A couple of years ago, Gilb had a story published in the New Yorker. A week before it appeared, an interview with him also appeared in its pages.
So....if you live in the Washington, D.C. area, or you know someone who lives in the Washington, D.C. area, please consider letting them know about this top tier literary event.
