Just a quick recap of the Latino Book and Family Festival. This was one of the best weekends I've had in a long time. I actually went a day early and attended a few panel discussions. I bought popcorn and watched the dancers on stage. I walked the booths and chatted with friends I haven't seen in a long time. And best of all, was able to meet many many readers who have read my Lara Rios books. Loved meeting you all!
I won't spend too much time going over details because La Bloga has done such an amazing job already that I don't need to. Visit their site to check it out: http://labloga.blogspot.com/2010/10/fotos-ese-lbff-on-line-floricanto.html
