Los Angeles Times Book Festival

Posted by Elizabeth on April 27, 2007
Otis is at Coachella and I'm supposedly manning the site today. Although I’m sad I’m missing Bjork and Interpol, I'm excited to announce that Goodreads will have a booth at the Los Angeles Times Book Festival tomorrow.

The festival, located on the UCLA campus, is one of the largest book-related festivals in the United States. If you are coming please stop by! Nearly 400 authors will be there signing books and giving lectures.

We've been working on a cool color concept for the booth design and the display will also feature a piece de resistance made entirely out of rubber! (More on that after the festival.)

I’ve also added the book “The Tourists” to “To-Read” list. Written by 27-year-old Jeff Hobbs, the novel is already being hailed as the next Great Gatsby for our generation. I’m curious to know what everyone else thinks!

Lastly, here is one of my favorite quotes for all you "creatives.”
"Love of beauty is Taste. The creation of beauty is Art.” --Ralph Waldo Emerson

Keep reading, keep writing! -E
