We picked up her little sister along the way and she devoured a good bit of Poison Study on the way there. Traffic was bad, so we were late. (Imagine... Traffic on I-95? Nooooo.) Luckily, Maria was signing until 3pm.
We managed to slide in between groups of fans, which was good because between the three of us we easily had over a dozen books. Maria never flinched. She was incredibly nice, talking to us as she personalized and signed each book. She even signed two books for lucky readers!
Maria signing of multiple books is like an elaborately choreographed dance that is wonderful to watch. She signs each book with a pen that's ink matches the color of the book cover and is fastidious about it. The trend continued at Book Expo America when she signed Spy Glass in orange to match its orange cover. :)
