FishbowlLA: Festival of Books

We couldn’t make it to this year’s Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, but fortunately mediabistro.com has FishbowlLA: Editor Tina Dupuy went to several of the weekend’s staged events, including the “Publishing 3.0” panel with (as seen above), David Ulin of the LA Times, ex-Publishers Weekly chief Sara Nelson, ex-Soft Skull executive editor Richard Nash, and Goodreads founder Otis Chandler.

Not pictured: Patrick Brown of Vroman’s, a local indie bookstore that ran a shuttle bus for its Pasadena customers to the UCLA campus where the Festival took place.

You’ll want to see the rest of Tina’s Festival coverage, while you’re at it; next year, we hope to resume tag-teaming the event with her, like we did in 2008.
