It’s hard to believe that this is the 38th annual show. I remember when I first learned of it, just like it was yesterday. Tom Lesser rented a small Pavilion next to the big Burbank Book Castle store in the old Golden Mall in downtown Burbank. The Pavilion was a round small building and it didn’t hold a lot of tables, but the books for sale were great. Tom rapidly outgrew the little Pavilion and moved to the Mission Hills Inn, where it was located for years. Now it is a big show and takes place at the Glendale Civic Auditorium. The show always attracts a great crowd, including a lot of authors who are happy to sign your books. If you collect paperbacks, science fiction or mystery genre books, this is the show that you must attend.
