Today, Mary and I attended the Orange County Children's Book Festival in Costa Mesa, CA. All of the panels and authors were really amazing. My favorite panels were "Keeping it Real" with Heidi Kling, Jessi Kirby, Lindsey Leavitt, Kristen Hubbard and Andrew Smith and "Paranormal Tendencies" with Emma Michaels, Inora Scott, Cindy Pon and Gretchen McNeil.
We got a great haul for some giveaways we'll be posting. We learned about some cool books that are on our "To Be Read" list if they haven't been there already (I've had my eye on Possess for a while and I know Mary has been itching to read Silver Phoenix).
The panels and author events ran very smoothly and we were cracking up a lot. We took a lot of photos and I hope you enjoy checking them out.
We got a ton of signatures and some SWAG courtesy of the authors. Whoever comments first on this blog post will receive some SWAG from today's event.
Thanks and Happy Reading!
