Two Saturdays ago, I attended the Los Angeles Festival of Books, a massive celebration of books, along with food, music, art, and shopping. There you can buy books, listen to panels, and run into your favorite authors.
Yeah. It happens. In order: Lilliam Rivera (The Education of Margot Sanchez); Jacqueline Woodson (Brown Girl Dreaming; Another Brooklyn); Roxane Gay (Bad Feminist; Difficult Woman).
Yes, book nerds fangirl too and yes, sometimes we acquire cotton mouth when our favorite authors near.
Happy. Happy. Joy. Joy.
