Books and People Galore!

The 2010 Latino Book and Family Festival held at CSU Los Angeles was packed with people, books, entertainers, musicians, over 100 Latino authors, celebrities and media.  I had many visitors at my booth purchasing Mexican jumping beans and copies of my books:  Lucas and His Loco Beans, Freaky Foods From Around the World – Platillos Sorprendentes de Todo el Mundo, and The Wooden Bowl – El bol de madera. It was great to see the faces of people amazed by a Margarita glass filled with seeds in motion.

Saturday, we were well toasted by the constant sun, but that didn’t keep us from attending the awards dinner where we were thoroughly entertained by traditional Mexican dancers and Mariachi music.  Since I was not at the Awards Ceremony at in New York City in May, I was delighted to be presented with my plaque for the International Latino Book Award for Best Family/Parenting Bilingual Book for my title:  The Wooden Bowl – El bol de madera.   I was not the only award winner, awards were also presented for books with potential for being turned into movies, documentaries and other media.

Lots of sun, lots of people, lots of celebrating equaled a great book festival.  I look forward to the 2011 Latino  Book and Family Festival
