Book festivals rule on so many levels. You get to hear amazing authors speak and then meet them, you get to socialize with other bookworms, what could be better? Well, not much in my opinion, except when one of those authors makes your All Time Greatest Authors List (we all have one).
So what am I talking about? Why the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books 2013, of course!
There’s so many authors attending this deal, I can’t even print the list because it is ridiculously long! I suppose that is to be expected from the largest book festival in the USA! So, I thought I would post the authors that I have selected to hear speak and get their autograph. You can view the entire line up here. I will be crazy posting pictures, too, so make sure you watch for my after the festival post!
Here’s my list (I’M SO FREAKING EXCITED!!!):
- Lauren Oliver
- Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
- Cassandra Clare
- Sarah Dessen
- Joyce Carol Oats
- Maureen Johnson
And, from my All Time Greatest Authors List, MARGARET ATWOOD.
I swoon just typing her name.
If I can, I may squeeze in a few others, but these are the definites. Perhaps, I’ll pick up an item to have signed and then give away!
If you are going to be attending, please let me know! Maybe we can meet up!
