The time they saved me wristbands

The time they saved me wristbands

I had just seen Nina LaCour at YallWest when I found out that she was going to be at The Grove with David Levithan for You Know Me Well. I put it on the calendar and monitored The Grove event page to see if the event would become wristbanded. Since we live in San Diego and wristbands go on sale at 9am, we often skip events at The Grove. Mostly because we usually can’t take an entire day off from […]

The time we went to Festival of Books

I’m not going to recount my ordeals with getting information about the author panels versus author signings because I’m pretty sure everyone already knows about it. I’ve been pretty whiny about it over the last couple of weeks. Needless to say, we got up to FOB just after 11:15. We had already missed the John Green panel that we had tickets for were just trying to get to the YA panel with Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl, Lauren Kate and DJ […]
