Los Angeles Times Festival of Books


Mark your calendars because when I mean that this is one event you do not want to miss, I really really mean it!

The Los Angeles Times Festival of books is an annual event that connects books lovers with authors. Sort of a very large meet and greet with your favorite author and a celebration of books. The festival is free to the public and features storytelling for the kiddos, cooking demos, panels with your favorite authors  and over 300+ booths featuring everything from community organizations to book publishers. There is something at the festival for everyone in the family.

The Target Children’s Stage will feature storytelling from Mallory Lewis and Lamb Chop, Jamie Lee Curtis, Disney Junior’s Choo-Choo Soul with Genevive, R.L. Stine author of Goosebumps and John Bemelmans Marciano author of Madeline at the White House. I love the Madeline book series and can’t wait to take my kiddos!

This year the festival changes location from the UCLA campus to the USC campus.

The annual Los Angeles Times Festival of Books will be held:
Saturday April 30, 2011 from 10am – 6pm
Sunday, May 1, 2011 from 10am – 5pm at the University of Southern California Campus.

Admission is Free but Parking will be $10

Reader Andrea sent in this adorable picture of her cutie. She emailed “He was born in California but spent his whole 4 year existence in Washington. So needless to say this is an ecstatic face!” I would have to agree!
