Not going to Coachella this weekend? Near the Los Angeles area? Then come to what is as good as the bookish version of the famous music and arts festival — The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books!
Held on the beautiful University of Southern California (USC) campus, in the heart of downtown LA, the festival is sure to be a wonderful weekend for book lovers of all kinds! Plus, the weather has cooled down from the heat wave we experienced earlier in the week and should be settled into a comfortable sunny day typical of April.
Here is a link to the festival’s website so you may receive more information on things like authors who will be in attendance, offered panels and their times, parking, public transportation, etc. Did I mention yet that this even is FREE?
I’ll be there and I could not be more excited! And if things go according to plan, which really relies upon the battery power of my phone, then I will be live-tweeting the panels I will be attending over on my twitter account: cammminbookland . Follow me if you are interested!
Authors I plan to see:
- John Green
- Veronica Roth
- Deborah Harkness on a Historical Fiction panel
- Leigh Bardugo on a YA Sci-Fi & Fantasy panel
- Marissa Meyer on a YA Sci-Fi & Fantasy panel
- Julie Anne Long on a Historical Romance panel
- Tessa Dare on a Historical Romance panel
(Sidenote: The panel for Julie Anne Long and Tessa Dare is unfortunately at the same time as the panel with John Green. As of right now, I have yet to decide which one to go to. I’ll probably just make a split decision tomorrow…)
