BookClubbish Was There: LA Times Festival of Books + Giveaway!

On April 28-29, BookClubbish was thrilled to partner with bookseller-extraordinaire Mysterious Galaxy in one of the most crowded booths at the LA Times Festival of Books in downtown Los Angeles. Book lovers gathered to browse the shelves, connect with their favorite authors and talk about their passion for great reads.

Here are some highlights from the event, just in case you couldn’t be there in person!

Author signings

We were so lucky to have such wonderful authors at our booth, including Brenda Novak, Brianna Wolfson, Kaira Rouda, and Allegra Huston. Devoted readers lined up to meet some of their favorite authors, including one fan who brought a well-worn advanced copy of Rosie Colored Glasses to be signed by Brianna Wolfson! Candy was also available, because who doesn’t love a little snack with their books?

A Festival of Winners

Wherever BookClubbish goes, amazing swag will follow. We offered a special prize wheel, where visitors could get notebooks, buttons, and tote bags. So even if you missed this event, keep your eyes out for us at future book-related gatherings! You never know what you could win!

      I am reading THE SECRET LIFE OF MRS. LONDON by Rebecca Rosenberg and I’m enjoying it very much. I love the books you have suggested, I just don’t have any of them yet. I do plan to read THE WIFE soon.

        Yes, it was definitely a page-turner. I stopped part-way into the 2nd book in the series. The writing just kind of jumped the shark for me in the 2nd book.
