For our AWP Spectacular, Literary Death Match heads to the nation's capital — and more specifically Black Cat — for a magical night of literature, witticisms and enough absurdity to momentarily distract from the horrors happening over at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Trust us when we say: this one's not to be missed.
