*sigh* I can get a ride anywhere from San Louis Obispo to parts of the OC. But the Bay Area is too far. I wish I could go to those events!

Genevieve I am so sorry. Since those authors are visiting california, maybe they will attend events around the same time in your area? It is worth a try to check it out :)

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
