Getting ready for the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books

First of all, the LA Times moved its headquarters to El Segundo, so I don’t know why it isn’t called the El Segundo Times.  But anyway…

The LA Times Festival of Books is next weekend.  You can see all the information, vendors and events here:

GLAWS will once again have its booth near the main stage and catty-corner to Tommy Trojan.  Booth #944 to be exact.

Yesterday we had an orientation for all our volunteers.  We covered setup times, breakdown times, and everything else volunteers need to do.  Pretty simple, really, just be friendly and help bring people into the booth to meet the authors and/or sign up for GLAWS – or at least, the GLAWS emails for more information.

Here is the layout of our booth.  At any given time, we will have six GLAWS authors greeting people and selling and signing their books.

Some of the authors were at the Zoom Author Orientation meeting following the volunteer orientation.  That’s me with Thunderbird 3 in the background.

And by the way, here are the authors that will be at our booth:

Personally, I can’t wait for the end of Sunday.  Brandie June will be there and I want to get her second book, “Curse Undone”, the sequel to her first book, “Gold Spun”.  Get it?
Gold Spun
Curse Undone
Clever girl.

See you at the fair,

“I’ve seen them in several 7-11, so it’s redundantly redundant over and over again.” – Dennis

“Well, that’s just repetitively redundantly redundant over and over again.” – Vincent Reinhart
