L.A. Times Festival of Books Sunday 29th
Started the day with the Cartoonists. 11:00 North 'C' PANEL 2031 10:00 AM The Sunday Funnies Mr. Bill Amend (Foxtrot), Mr. Wiley Miller (Non Sequitor) Went and picked up his kids book early from 829 whale of a tale, and brought it to the signing, Mr. Stephan Pastis (Pearls Before Swine), Mr. Jerry Scott (artist for Baby Blues & Zits) He wasn't signing. Good thing we went early, once the panel was out there was a mob of a line. Afterwards we went and took a load of signed books to the car.
We started the line at 12:20 for the 1:00 Berkeley Breathed Mars Needs Moms (Bloom County, Outland, Opus) SUN 813 Duttons.
Managed to convince Duttons to go 3 old for each new books purchased.
Trotted over to the 1:00 Michael Connelly sun 1-2 411 mystery bookstore - he's a quick signer.
Then down to 1:30 South 'Z' Ms. Jane Smiley, another quick trip, I expected a larger line.
Back up to Mystery Bookstore for 2:00 411 Walter Mosley
After that we just wandered, found some interesting things, bookmark/bracelets, and local histories that I'll try and get for the store.
Found an amazing photo/art book at Baby Tattoo Books Booth # 234 VISIONS FROM WITHIN THE MECHANISM: THE INDUSTRIAL SURREALISM OF JEFFERY SCOTT (1019)
