L.A. Festival of Books
Hey all you Angelenos, the L.A. Times-sponsored Festival of Books is coming to the UCLA campus the weekend of April 28th and 29th. No joke, it's billed as "the country's largest celebration of the written word." They're open Saturday from 10 to 6, Sunday from 10 to 5. Normally I don't actually go, having three kids to wrangle and all, but I'm going to try to make it this year. The list of authors includes a whole bunch of people I don't care about, plus some I'm really interested in: Vikram Chandra, T.C. Boyle, Jane Smiley and Gore Vidal. They also advertise two children's areas, so if your kids are more amenable than mine, you could try it.
