“Inspire Your Fire” was the theme of this weekend’s LA Times Festival of Books. Every year the Festival attracts thousands of people for book signings, poetry readings, music, art, and (of course) book shopping! I’ve been wanting to go for years, but in the past it hasn’t worked out. So glad I got to do this!
Here are some of the highlights:
We passed by John Green signing copies of The Fault in Our Stars and heard girls giggling uncontrollably.
We almost got a picture with John.
We added the books that inspire our fire to this big sign:
Jane Eyre for me, “Anything by Rick Riordan” for Maggie
I saw this breathtaking picture of the Colby Fire in Glendora.
I came home with a few great books.
I was a little bummed that I didn’t get to actually meet any authors, but there’s always next year!
If you’ve been to the LA Times Festival of Books, what did you do? What were your highlights?
