|A small portion of people in line behind me.|
|John Green being a rock star.|
I snagged a seat when all the Maggie-fans ran off to the signing (all the books I own by her are already signed). Melissa Marr was up next. She was the only author of the day who I had never seen live before. Her session was in a bit of a different format than the other authors, who read a passage from their book, talked about it, then took questions. Melissa was interviewed on stage before a Q&A. I found the interview to be a bit awkward, but I really liked Melissa and I'm way more excited to read Carnival of Souls after hearing her speak.
|The funniest, scariest man alive... R.L. Stine.|
Finally, last up was a LEGEND: R.L. Stine. Seriously, the man is hilarious. And awesome. And he wrote freaking Goosebumps and Fear Street, which were my favorite as a kid. He's one of my favorite authors and he's one of the funniest people on twitter. The Q&A was awesome, with tons of little kids asking adorable questions. He recommended Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury and said that he reads Dandelion Wine at least once a year, to remind himself what good writing is.
Seriously, they had a great line up. I am still a little disappointed that I couldn't make it on Sunday, but I'm already excited for next year.
