One of my favorite events here is the Vegas Valley Book Festival. Last year I attended and met B.J. Novak as well as one of my favorite writers of all time, Aimee Bender. It was a genuine pleasure, and Aimee was everything I had ever hoped she would be, and more. She’s the type of woman who waves at you from across the buffet table, and that pretty much made my life.
This year the headliners are Brad Meltzer and Colum McCann. I can’t wait to hear what they have to say. I’ll also be on a panel titled Industry Insights: The Art and Business of Blogging. Come by and say hi!
