Los Angeles Times Festival of Books [May 2011]

[This is a late post.]

This year’s “Festival of Books” was held at the

University of Southern California (USC) near Downtown Los Angeles.

We couldn’t make it on opening day because we were too busy book hunting =)

so we made it there on the 2nd day.

Here are some authors we saw at the book event:

D.J. McHale

R.L. Stine

Lisa See

It was a super hot day, but it all became so worth it when I saw the JASNA booth

(Jane Austen Society of North America – which I am a member of).

I took a peek at who was signing, and I saw one of my favorite authors Syrie James =)

I collect her books! My heart melted and I could not stop smiling.

I was so happy and excited that I had to buy another copy of her book,

just to have it signed by her!

Here is Syrie while signing my book:

This is now one of my most cherished books, because she signed it:

We’re looking forward to next year’s event.

  1. This looked like an amazing event. 🙂 This is my first time to see a photo of Lisa See; I guess I’ve always thought she was Chinese! Talk about judging the author by the book cover.

    It’s funny I said the same thing 🙂 I really thought she was Chinese because of her last name and her books so I was pleasantly surprised =)
