Los Angeles Times Festival of Books!

This is a big weekend here in L.A. It's the Festival of Books at the UCLA campus. An excuse for a couple hundred thousand of your closest friends to get together an celebrate the written word.

I will definitely be there, hanging out with this guy, hoping to see this guy, and this guy, and the female Brett, and her good friend...oh and this knucklehead will be there too, but if I see him first, I might be able to avoid him.

The point is there's going to be a ton of people in town for this really wonderful event. If you are in the area, I encourage you to go even if just for a few hours. It's a ton 'o fun. And you can quote me on that!

I'll be wandering around, so if you see me, stop me and say hi!

Here are some links to get you excited:

The Mystery Bookstore, which is hosting a pre-festival party Friday night (yep, I'll be there!)

Ya know, I don't think I've ever been called a knucklehead.

Lots of other things often involving four letter words and creative use of grammar, but never knucklehead. I feel that this must be some watershed moment in my life, but probably isn't.

Green in AZ - sounds like you'll have a blast! Even with the knucklehead...
