Melissa Kwasny will be at the the 2019 Association of Writers & Writing Programs Conference and Bookfair signing copies of her new book Putting on the Dog. Event is open to those attending the conference.

In Putting on the Dog: The Animal Origins of What We Wear, Melissa Kwasny explores the age-old relationship between humans and the animals that have provided us with our clothing: leather, wool, silk, feathers, pearls, and fur. Kwasny demonstrates how what we choose to wear represents one of our most profound engagements with the natural world.

The AWP Conference is the largest literary conference in North America. It features over 2,000 presenters and 550 readings, panels, and craft lectures. The bookfair hosts over 800 presses, journals, and literary organizations from around the world.
