Never Mind Me. I’m Just Fangirling.

Two Saturdays ago, I attended the Los Angeles Festival of Books, a massive celebration of books, along with food, music, art, and shopping. There you can buy books, listen to panels, and run into your favorite authors.

Yeah. It happens. In order: Lilliam Rivera (The Education of Margot Sanchez); Jacqueline Woodson (Brown Girl Dreaming; Another Brooklyn); Roxane Gay (Bad Feminist; Difficult Woman).

Yes, book nerds fangirl too and yes, sometimes we acquire cotton mouth when our favorite authors near.

Happy. Happy. Joy. Joy.

Hello Everyone, I'm Latanya aka Crafty Scribbles. I'm a reader. Well, obviously this is a book blog. Reading and enjoying the process is a must. Why not share my joy with others like me - or unlike me, pleasant conversation and all being key? What's there to know? Well, along with reading, I write stories. I'd like to publish them (I've published poetry, which is cool, too). But, until I do, I hope to share my views on the writings of others. In my personal life, I teach as well as work as a wife and mom to two boys (Yes, these count as work, too!). I currently live in a Los Angeles suburb, but I travel and my mind expands to to other places on the globe. Care to join me? I promise to be fair, honest, and respectful. I'm not here to cut fellow writers. But, I do believe in sharing critiques that help others to grow. So, if you're looking for drama, I'm sorry I can't help you with that request. I hope you enjoy your stay whoever you are.
