My favorite book festival is coming up soon… the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books! In 2016 the dates are set for April 9-10 at the USC campus. In addition to being the largest book festival in the United States – with more than 150,000 people expected to attend and offering hundreds of free readings, talks, and amazing panels – it’s all FREE.
There is nothing better than wandering through more than 400 exhibition booths at this massive event, meeting authors and publishers, attending the events, and simply celebrating writing, books, and the written word (as well as all the people who make the magic happen).
I also want to say thank you to the hundreds of volunteers who help make this event possible. If you’re in the area and have time, check out volunteering here.
