Pre-conference social gathering
We hope that all Peace Corps writers attending the conference will join us at
FreeHouse, in Berkeley
Thursday evening, June 4th from 7:30pm – 9:30pm
for a casual gathering to meet, and talk books, writing — and Peace Corps, of course. Spouses and partners are welcome.
FreeHouse serves beer, cocktails and American food. It is at 2700 Bancroft Way, just 1 block from Unit 1 Quad, the location of the conference dormitory housing and where many of the program presentations will take place.
If you plan to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Book sales at the Exhibit Hall
Authors who have published their books with Peace Corps Writers will be selling and autographing their books during the conference.
