Visit the LA Times Festival of Books, this April 22nd and 23rd on the USC campus!
Every year the LA Times brings together people who love to write books with people who love to read them! You can meet some of your favorite authors, or some of your favorite readers!
It is a wonderful place to find some great books to read.
The festival also plays host a number of panels! This year my friend Antoine Wilson will be leading four stellar authors: Marcy Dermansky, Gina Frangello, Jon Raymond, and Lisa See, in a discussion called "'Everybody’s Got One: Fiction & Families.'"

The title of our panel is “Everybody’s Got One: Fiction & Families,” but we’ll be talking much more than family, no doubt.
Possible side-topics include: Pu’er tea, writing like Haruki Murakami, desire, and the legacy of violence.
Come listen and then ask a weird question!

Instead of trying to shoehorn another […]
