Lookout is proud to announce that poet and Lookout author John Rybicki will be heading out on a North Carolina tour this coming week. The tour, made possible with generous support from the North Carolina Arts Council, will include stops at oncology centers, a library, and a bookstore.

AWP Recap

Now that we’ve had some time to recover from AWP 2013, here’s a little photo recap of our time in Boston. We had several great panels, including a tribute to Edith Pearlman, a talk on successful indie publishing, and our own four debut Lookout authors reading together for the first time. They also signed books at our booth and got to talk with all our loving readers.

Lookout Books’ Guide to Valentine’s Day, Part 2

In the second part of our literary Valentine’s Day series, we’re suggesting taking your loved ones out on a literary date. The North Castle Public Library’s Olde Firehouse book club is meeting tonight in Upstate New York to talk about “the dilemmas of Jewish love stories.”

But in case you can’t get there by tonight, find a local reading. You can find a calendar at Poets & Writers, your library, community centers, colleges, and city listings.
