Y’all…April is already more than halfway over, so you know what that means…


IT’S GONNA BE MAY. And the first weekend of May calls for one of my personal favorite parts of this job—seeing your beautiful faces in bright and sunny Santa Monica to talk all things bookish. As usual, we have an a-may-zing lineup of upcoming titles and swag, but this year, our friends from JIMMY Patterson are joining us and bringing you some of their books to share with y’all. I know that you book lovers plan your day down to the minute, so here’s our booth’s schedule of activities so you can plan accordingly. Hit us up on social if you have any questions, and see y’all soon!
