We’ll be posting photos and commentary throughout the weekend right here on Littoral, with guest posts from Cara Cannella and Nick Vagnoni and photographs by Nick Doll. And we’ll be abuzz and up-to-the-minute on Twitter @KeyWestLiterary as well as on Facebook. Please follow along and chime in, whether you’re here, near, or far.
