LA Times FOB: Hitting the Road!

After wrapping some things up today with life and work I will be hitting the airport tonight to catch a flight down to LA for the LA Times Festival of Books which starts tomorrow and man am I excited! My mom is driving up tomorrow morning to join me. This is my first book festival and I can't wait to take in all the action!

Tickets to the panels were selling out fast but two panels I got us into are a 'Conversation with Meg Cabot' and 'Memoir: All the Single Ladies' with Amy Alkon, Julie Klausner, Guilia Melucci, and Sascha Rothchild. There are over 400 authors at this event so we are really excited.

Also, I've been emailing back and forth with lots of book bloggers and we get to meet up with all of them for lunch and dinner so look forward to some pictures of that! I can't wait to put a face to a blog, so to speak. :)

Full report on the festival will be here next week. Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. How exciting -- so jealous! Especially that you'll get to see Meg Cabot, my hero, and that you'll be in L.A. Have a wonderful time!

  2. I thought about going to that memoir panel, but am going to a different one instead. Looking forward to meeting you!

  3. Have fun -- hope you get lots of book-o-licious schwag!

  4. Lucky lucky you! I can't wait to hear the report and see blogger pictures! :)

  5. Lucky! I hope to go one day in the future, but in the meantime, I'll look forward to your recap!

  6. I hope to attend the festival next year. I hope you enjoyed it!
