LA Book Festival Photos

April 28, 2009

Teresa wrote me today, having come back from the LA Book Festival:

I wanted to report in on the LA Times Festival of Books – wonderful event.

As one of the larger book festivals turnout was very healthy — organizers estimated about 170,000 attended. The BookMooch booth enjoyed a constant stream of visitors who expressed interest & appreciation. Folks understood the concept right away and were very enthusiastic. Most overhead comment was “Great idea, I will definitely join!”.

BookMoochers Margot and Veronica came to help out with the booth. Several other Moochers stopped by specially to say hello and thanks. The Festival was on the beautiful UCLA campus and I’ve attached some shots in a zip file if you want to post them on the blog.
