putting the weeee! in weho

I am all over the West Hollywood Book Fair this coming Sunday. Good thing I hear the snacks in the green room are going to be extra tasty this year. But seriously, there’s so much to like about this event—some of my favorite writers will be there, like Noel Alumit, Francesca Lia Block, Brendan Constantine, Peter Gadol, Nina Revoyr, Sarah Schulman, Lynne Thompson….

Okay, before this turns into some kind of Oscar-type speech where I leave out important names, I’ll just let you know where I’ll be:

West Hollywood Book Fair
Sunday, Oct. 4
647 N. San Vicente Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90069

1 p.m.: Panel, “Take Back the Night: Feminism and Powerful Women in Fiction”; in the Fact, Fiction & Future Pavilion. With Sophie Littlefield, Pam Ward and Terry Wolverton (moderated by Lindsey Hovarth).

2 p.m.: Signing books at the Manic D Press booth. Come say hi!

3:15 p.m.: Panel, “The Future of Publishing”; in the Fact, Fiction & Future Pavilion. With Teresa Carmody, Eloise Klein Healy, Bronwyn Mauldin and Kerry Slattery (moderated by Terry Wolverton).

Late afternoon: Probably collapsed next to the churro stand.

What (perhaps sadly) reveals my pop-obsessed true colors is that I read about this bookfair a couple days ago on Whedonesque (a site related to all things Joss Whedon), saw that Amber Tamblyn would be signing at the Manic D press booth, and immediately thought, "Cheryl might get to meet her. Awesome!"

OK, there was more internal monologue than that, sigh.

And to ramp up the odd, I learned that AT was a poetess via the DVD commentary on Spring Breakdown.

Still, I remembered your publisher offhand, so that's worth something, right?

p.s. Have a great time! I hope it's a blast!

My publisher will be happy to know Manic D made it into Whedon-esque. And yeah, it's fun to share a press with Amber Tamblyn. I was quite the Joan of Arcadia fan back in the day.
