Heather, Carole and I arrived yesterday. We’re staying in Hollywood right near the Kodak Theater. I’ve never been to LA before. It’s sunny with wide boulevards. Last night Heather and I went to a cocktail party at this neat bar called The Woods. It’s full of wood paneling and antlers. We were there as part of the Emerging Leaders, an organization for younger booksellers. We met lots of great booksellers from around the country as well as a whole bunch from Skylight Books here in LA.
Today is the day of education here at the hotel. We’ll learn about finance, how to have great events (not that we need that help in my opinion), how to green the store, etc. And of course we hope to spend some time at the wonderful looking poll on the fifth floor!
