I'm back with another event recap! Libba Bray stopped by Vroman's in Pasadena, CA on Oct 14, 2012 to sign her new book The Diviners. To tell you the truth, I haven't had a chance to read any of Libba's books yet but my friend Crystal is a huge fan and she convinced me to go. (But let's be real. It's not that hard to convince me to go to a bookstore.)
Crystal and I arrived pretty early so we had a nice lunch down the street and made it back in plenty of time to do some shopping before the signing. This signing was a pizza party, which we had no idea was happening, and the Vroman's staff brought in two giant pizzas to share. And by giant I mean they were like 3 feet in diameter. I wish I had gotten a picture of them but I forgot.
She opened up the floor to questions and someone asked her how often she got to hang out with Maureen Johnson. I think she mentioned something about how Maureen doesn't like to venture out of her own neighborhood so they see each other less than you would think, given that they live in the same city. She also said that Maureen was "delicate, like a flower." :)
When asked which of her books was her favorite to write, Libba said Going Bovine. She also said that it was the most emotionally biographical book she's ever written.
If you're interested, we have a few more pics in our Facebook album. Anyone else out there a big Libba Bray fan? Which book should I read first? :)
