LOS ANGELES TIMES FESTIVAL OF BOOKS
April 23, 2017
Los Angeles, CA
It's sun and fun as the author joins in this celebration of books in sunny California from 10AM-5PM on the campus of the University of Southern California. The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books began in 1996 with a simple goal: to bring together the people who create books with the people who love to read them. The festival was an immediate success and has evolved to include live bands, poetry readings, chef demos, cultural entertainment and artists creating their work on-site. There’s also a photography exhibit, film screenings followed by Q&A’s and discussion panels on some of today’s hottest topics. Join in the celebration at the SPAWN (Small Publishers and Writers Network) table!
