LA Times Festival of Books: Notable Speakers & Hot Books

This past weekend of April 24-25 saw the LA Times Festival of Books on the UCLA campus. I was thrilled to meet some of my favorite authors and also get acquainted with some new ones. Here's a slide show with commentary of some memorable encounters: Buzz Aldrin, author of Magnificent Desolation: The Long Journey Home from the Moon; Dr Gary Small, author of iBrain: Surviving the Technological Alteration of the Modern Mind; Sebastian Junger, author of the upcoming War; and Dr. Dudley Seth Danoff, author of Penis Power; and Dr. Dan Siegel, author of Mindsight: The New Science of Personal Transformation.
