Mr. Mosley is a brilliant writer. He was entertaining and informative. He discussed his life and shared moments of his life in Los Angeles. He read a few pages from his book "Little Green" and then had a "Q and A". Afterwards, book signing. I was lucky to get a picture with him. I've only read two of his books out of 43 or so. But after attending this event I've become a fan and will read all of his books. The event was well organized and the audience was a mixed crowd.

Quotes & Highlights
“Mosley returns here to doing what he does best: setting the pain and pleasure of individual lives, lived mostly in L.A.’s black community, within an instantly recognizable historical moment and allowing the two to feed off one another. … [A] major event for crime-fiction fans.”* —Bill Ott, Booklist *
