Book Soup is one of the largest independent bookstores in existence, known for its eclectic inventory and celebrity clientele. This Los Angeles landmark held a book signing event at the Powerhouse Arena in Brooklyn yesterday, kicking off the 2009 Photo Festival. Many an artist and author turned out, (and made out?) dressed to the hipster hilt.
