LAT Festival of Books 2012

This was year two of the LA Times Festival of Books taking place at USC instead of UCLA. This year, we had a better idea of what to expect (bad traffic on the 110, how to better approach the parking structure, etc) so we had a nice time and got lots of books signed. I LOVED the Rex the dinosaur! He was representing the Natural Museum of History. Roar. The Festival Logo for this year featured a dinosaur as well (reading, of course). Tooooo cute.

It was great to see Patrick Carman who we met for the first time at this book festival back in 2009. Flim ties, eh? ;)

Bill grew up in San Diego and has known Nancy Holder and Nathan Long for many years. And THEY both know he always has a deck of cards handy and can entertain them with a quick magic trick. Or five. :)
