Books Acquired Recently: AWP Edition

All of the books I ordered at the AWP virtual bookfair last month have finally arrived! They are books that are either by authors who I saw speak and enjoyed, or that various speakers recommended, or that I saw discussed or advertised on Twitter via the conference’s hashtag. All but Corral’s are somewhere along the memoir/creative nonfiction spectrum.
