Camille Rose Garcia Signing at Powell's Books

I was one of the many people who showed up last night to the book signing for Camille Rose Garcia's Alice in Wonderland at Powell's Books here in Portland Oregon. The wait was very long because there was a huge line. I got to talk to Garcia very briefly. She told me that she was really excited to have had the chance to illustrate Alice in Wonderland. She also mentioned that she had been disappointed to hear that the Mock Turtle wasn't in the Tim Burton film. We talked a bit about how there was a lot of crying in Lewis Carroll's book. I gushed about how much I loved her illustrations for this book (it's all true!) Here's a link to my review of Camille Rose Garcia's Alice in Wonderland.

As a bonus, there are a bunch of her paintings up right now, so if you're in the Portland area you might want to make a trip to the 3rd floor of Powell's on Burnside to see them. They're much more much in person. Also! If you live in Seattle, there is a book signing there tomorrow at 2:00 PM, March 13th, 2010 at: Roq La Rue Gallery.
