LA Times Festival of Books Sunday Day 2
Sought out James Ellroy, Diana Paxson, Lisa Scottoline early. Managed to get a ticket for Eric Carle, then saw Amber Benson, but missed Laura Numeroff. Found Ian McDonald, T.C. Boyle, & Paul Feig, but not Henry Winkler. Saw Francescia Lia Block but missed S.E. Hinton. Did catch Jon Scieszka but missed Michael Hague.

The Comix Strip which they made much of in the paper and online was quite disapointing, there were only 4 good booths, and 2 of them should have been over in the book section.
