AWP's 2008 Conference may be sold out, but that doesn't mean you can't attend the Bookfair.
According to the AWP Conference web site's FAQs for exhibitors (http://www.awpwriter.org/conference/2008exhibitorfaqs.php), the Bookfair is open to the public on Saturday, February 2. No badges will be necessary to visit the Bookfair on THAT DAY ONLY.
Many people who have been used to registering on-site have found themselves with hotel and transportation booked, but nothing to do when they get there. Fortunately, AWP has opened a forum for organizations/authors to post "off-site" events. You can access that forum at the following link:
While anyone can attend off-site events, some events do have cover charges.
