Festival of Books LA

April 26th, 2010

LA Book FairI went to the LA Book Fair last Saturday. It was an absolute zoo, but I saw a lot of great books and even met some illustrators doing book signings. Bill Pete’s son was there selling his father’s books. When I was a kid I loved Pete’s “The Wump World.” I also discovered a well known illustrator/author Oliver Jeffers whose work I fell in love with. My husband bought me a signed copy of Jeffer’s book, “The Way Back Home.” I saw David Lynch but the line was too long to get anything signed. There was even a stage with demos by the stars of Top Chef. It was great to see so many people out supporting the book world.
