What Was I Thinking? Reading at Borders

What Was I Thinking-1.jpgThe second-floor of Borders Books in Westwood was shockingly packed on Sunday for the Los Angeles authors’ reading of What Was I Thinking?

Hosted by Wendy Hammers, the readers including Zoe Braverman, Tina Dupuy, Sarah Reinhardt, Deborah Kagan, Francesca Lia Block, Marydeith Burrel, Betty Goldstein, Claudia Handler, Katherine Ruppe, Nora Zelevansky and Mary Margaret Martinez.

We also saw book contributor, former FBLA editor Kate Coe in the audience. She didn’t read. Total let down.

We also met the hilarious, LA staple, cartoonist Mimi Pond who’s work was featured in the book. She was warm, friendly and very sweet to us. And then she asked, “What’s FBLA?”

Guess no one’s perfect.
