L.A. Times Festival of Books Saturday 28th

Day 1
Shelley, Bain & Aric

First signature of the day 10:00 #411 Frank Beddor mystery bookstore

Wandered a bit until 11:30 513 Hilary Knight - Eloise artist at every picture tells a story, I'd always thought Hilary Knight was a woman, but he's an elderly english man. Polite with a nice signatues, but no sketching.

11:00 #411 Robert Crais mystery bookstore, skipped the mile long Mary Higgins Clark line and just got Crais.

12:30 South "X" PANEL 1102 11:30 AM Fiction: Writing Across Genres
Ms. Francesca Lia Block,
Ms. S.E. Hinton, a nice late middle age sort of woman. Another whose gender I'd always been confused on.

1:00 411 Christopher Moore mystery bookstore, a funny funny guy.

2:00 614 Walter Mosley mysterious galaxy - his plane was late or something and he was a no-show

3:30 Storyopolis Michael Hague, did wonderful sketches in every book, but took his time, it was well after 4:30 by the time we were done.

3:10 Target Stage - Julie Andrews - didn't even try the line was giant last year, but she did stop by Storyopolis while we were getting sketches from Hague. Target security emptied the stall for her, and then blocked all view and stood around while she was back in there doing something...

Then Bain and Aric stood around one of the exits and passed out a few flyers.
Bushed, but it beats sanding :)
