Upcoming: Los Angeles Times Festival of Books

It's April.  These days I always associate April with a number of things, among them the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books.  The LATFOB is next weekend, and I'm looking forward to it!

For one thing, I'm delighted that this year I've been invited to be a featured signing author at the booth being hosted by the Los Angeles Romance Authors, the local chapter of Romance Writers of America.  LARA has had a booth for the past few years and I've often volunteered there, but this is the first time in a while that I'll be signing.

I'll also be staffing--and signing at--the Mystery Writers of America booth, as well as signing at the Sisters in Crime booth.

All of these will take place on Saturday.  I hope I also get some time to wander and visit other booths, although I won't attend any of the many talks being given this year.  I don't intend to go on Sunday because I have too many deadlines coming up to comfortably spend both days at the festival.

These days the LATFOB is on the University of Southern California campus.  It used to be held at the UCLA campus.  I enjoy both, but one fun thing about USC is that I can get there by Metro, although I have to change trains.

I'm sure I'm going to have a fun Saturday.  If you're in the LA area, do you plan to attend?

Have fun at the Festival of Books. I used to go when it was at UCLA. It always seems I'm out of town that weekend anyway.
