Brooklyn Book Fest 2010

The Fifth Annual Brooklyn Book Festival was held yesterday, and it was a success. However, the coldish, rainy, Fall-like weather was a far cry from last year's beautiful, summer day.

I spent most of my time at the Youth Stoop (with a quick bathroom break/snack at the nearby Chipotle). Here is my Brooklyn Book Fest in pictures:

Author/illustrator Shane Evans signing books
Mary Kole and TS Ferguson
A long signing line for Rebecca Stead

Barry Lyga moderating the panel on "About a Boy" with Torrey Maldonado, Jacqueline Woodson, and Charles Fuller
I sat behind two reading gals

Kirsten Miller moderates the "Happily Ever After?" panel with Jenny Han, Sara Shepard, and Lauren Oliver
Tiger Beat performs! (Danile Ehrenhaft, Libba Bray, Natalie Standiford, and Barnabas Miller on drums)
Tiger Beat groupies (aka Stacey Barney, Nancy Mercado, and Barry Goldblatt) cheer them on
Here are two excerpts of songs that Tiger Beat performed. First, the original song, "YA Song". David Levithan is holding up the lyrics, but they might be too small for you to read.

And they closed with the appropriate for the day, "Purple Rain":

The walk home in the rain at the end.
Till next year...
