I finally had a chance to go to UCLA's yearly, Festival of Books. If you love books like I do, it is a not to be missed festival. Along with lots of books, there were different stages with music, cooking demonstrations, kid's entertainment, poetry readings and more. Some of Saturday's celebrity authors that were on hand to speak and sign books were, Tori Spelling, Alyssa Milano, Tom Bergeron and Bob Barker.
I, however, was most excited about my Bay Area friend, Dexter Vizinau, coming to LA and doing a book signing for his book, Shine on Me. It is an amazing story about his Mother and how she raised both him and his brother, in spite of being blind. It was great to see Dexter in action and I was able to get a picture with him. Knowing Dexter, this will be made into a movie so I will keep you posted.
