The WLA hosts two FB sites: one general page for all who are interested in the WLA (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Western-Literature-Association/108512689178272) and one for graduate student members of the WLA (http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/WLAgrads/). The latter is a great way for graduate students to find roommates at the conference, ride shares, etc.
