Los Angeles Times Festival of Books

Are you looking for something fun that the entire family will enjoy this weekend? Look no further and make plans to attend the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. It is a really special treat and it is FREE to the public.

 The Los Angeles 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.The festival is a free public event, and includes exciting author events, storytelling, cooking demonstrations and poetry readings. Outdoor readings, storytelling and presentations are held on the Target Children’s Stage.

The outdoor Target Children’s Stage will feature storytelling and readings for children. The YA Stage features panels and talks for teens and tweens. There are dozens of booths featuring children’s books, toys and art. In addition, there will be several activities coordinated by educational and cultural groups and costumed characters on the festival grounds

    If you go, make sure to check out the Target Children's stage for kid's authors reading and kids music performances. I cannot speak highly enough of the music of Justin Roberts and the Not Ready for Naptime Players. They are so fun (they have lots of CDs if you are interested). It's fun kid pop/rock that is eminently sing-a-long-able and I swear I actually as an adult enjoy the music. They are performing both Saturday and Sunday at the LA Festival of Books.
