Previously held at Westlake High School, the book festival moved this year to the Palmer Events Center at Auditorium Shores in the heart of downtown.
Attendance for panels was standing room only:
|David Levithan, John Corey Whaley, and Andrea Cremer|
|Jeff Herbach and Christina Mandelski|
|Rosemary Clement-Moore, Brian Yansky, Jonathan Maberry (seated, foreground). Heather Brewer and Greg Leitich Smith (standing). Scott Westerfeld and Jenny Han (seated, background)|
The author-moderator after-party at Highball, featuring food, drink, bowling and karaoke, was also enormously fun.
Thanks to everyone who organized, planned, volunteered, and attended! Can't wait till next year!
