Los Angeles Times Festival of Books
April 22, 2017 @ 10:00 am - April 23, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
Los Angeles Times Festival of Books is coming to USC on Saturday, April 22 and Sunday, April 23. Every year over 150,000 people experience a gathering of writers, poets, artists, filmmakers, and musicians at the largest book festival in America.
The LA 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. Since then, the festival has grown into a vibrant celebration of all of the arts, and of our dynamic, innovative and unique metropolis. The Festival of Books is The Times’ annual gift to our city.
826LA & the Time Travel Mart will be joining forces with KCRW once again! Stop by Booth #111 for the The Longest Story in the World as well as a Time Travel Mart pop-up shop.
On Sunday from 12:30-1:30PM, 826LA Executive Director Joel Arquillos will be leading a panel discussion with writers and educators about reaching young readers at their level at the Young Adult stage. Join Melissa de la Cruz, Benjamin Alire Saenz, Janet Tashjian, and Renee Watson for engaging discussion! Read more about the panel here.
