LA Times Festival of Books 2013: Day 1

Posted on: April 20, 2013

I’m exhausted and desperately in need of a bath, so for now I give you merely the basic stats of what I did today:

Panels attended:

  • Young Adult Fiction: So Much for Normal with Kiersten White, Tahereh Mafi, Rachel Cohn, Tahereh Mafi, Michelle Gagnon, and moderated by Aaron Hartzler
  • Young Adult Fiction: Danger and Determination with A.S. King, Martine Leavitt, Elizabeth Wein, and moderated by Angelina Benedetti

Books bought:

  • Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
  • Orleans by Sherri Smith
  • I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen
  • This Moose Belongs to Me by Oliver Jeffers
  • Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers
  • Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
  • The Illustrated Step-by-Step Cook by Lucy Bannel
  • Princess Ben by Catharine Gilbert Murdock
  • The Going to Bed Book by Sandra Boynton
  • Curious George’s 1 to 10 and Back Again by H. A. Rey

Books signed:

  • Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

  • This Moose Belongs to Me by Oliver Jeffers
  • Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers
  • Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

Books from those two lists that you all should read:

  • I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen
  • Orleans by Sherri Smith
  • (possibly more to come after I read Code Name Verity and Princess Ben)

Trips taken on mass transit: 4

Miles walked: way too many.  Especially considering that second list.
