festival of books 2009 - day two

Another lovely day at the Festival of Books. One of my panel posts - Fiction: The Writer's Ear - is up at Jacket Copy.

In response to a question about her style, Sarah Shun-lien Bynum related how she has been a lifelong word collector since fourth grade, when she began recording vocabulary on index cards. Her favorite word at the time was “luscious.”

Two more to follow shortly...Meanwhile, enjoy some photos from today's panels.

Enough About You: Humor and Fiction (l to r: Carolyn Kellogg, Ben Greenman, Seth Greenland, and Tod Goldberg)
