Hundreds of famous authors -- from Paul Auster, Carol Higgins Clark, Tony Danza, Jimmie Walker, Edwidge Danticat, Pete Hamill to Joyce Carol Oates -- sat on the panels, gave readings and signed books. (Pete Hamill was voted this year's Bobi Honoree.)
UPDATE: Some people said the panels were so full they couldn't get into some of them. We didn't have this trouble, but we didn't try to get into the crowd-magnets this year. How many people were shut out?
The Melville House booth.
Above: "Altered States" -- panel featuring books with themes of drugs and their effects on relationships. Steven Wishnia (When the Drumming Stops), Alex Shakar (Luminarium) and Bronwen Hruska (Accelerated). Hirsh Sawhney moderated.
