Scene @ Aury Wallington’s Pop Party

aury-wallington.jpgSure, when you think “book party,” New York is the city that comes to mind, but the mediabistro.com team in Los Angeles is doing its bit to make the literary scene out on the West Coast as well. Last month, they hosted the release party for Pop!, a YA novel by television writing instructor Aury Wallington (left) that generated a mini-controversy when Borders decided it wasn’t suitable for stores. More pictures from the party are available in mediabistro.com’s events section, along with photos from the many other parties Laurel & company throw each week.
