The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books
The LA Times Festival of Books has just announced its lineup, and I am delighted to say I will be appearing on a panel titled History: Unknown Los Angeles at 3:30 in Saturday April 25.
I will join fellow authors D.J. Waldie, who wrote Holy Land: A Suburban Memoir, and other books on Los Angeles and Chip Jacobs whose book Smogtown explores one of Los Angeles' most famous products. Bill Deverell, my old friend from Stanford and now the head of the USC-Huntington Center for the Study of California and the West, will moderate.
I have always wanted to go to this festival. Around 450 authors and 140,000 congregate on the campus of UCLA for a weekend. But since I live in the Bay Area, it's a little far to go. Now I have an excuse.
