Literary evangelists of Los Angeles, let the countdown begin. April has officially arrived, which means our city’s most cherished annual literary extravaganza, The 17th annual Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, is only a few weeks away (April 21-22, to be exact). The festival, which was once a time-honored UCLA tradition, jumped campuses last year to USC. And while the change was a bit jarring for some, the lineup was stellar and literature lit up downtown LA for a truly memorable—and seriously stimulating—weekend. True to form, this year promises even more authors, book-signings, insightful presentations, and a chance to rub shoulders with some of the world’s finest ink-slingers.
