May Day, Sunday at Fest of Books

Bibliocracy broadcasts live from the KPFK booth (#1026) at the University of Southern California, site of this year's Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on May Day! This is a free event, open to the public. Come by and watch (!) on the radio, with me, the Bibliofella, starting at 10:30 AM, followed by the usual amazing Sunday morning public affairs line-up: Ian Masters ("Background Briefing"), Maria Armoudian and Terrence McNally. My on-site guests will be (10:30) talking with me about "California writing," and include poet/cultural historian Susan Suntree (Sacred Sites: A Secret History of Southern California), novelist Victoria Patterson (This Vacant Paradise), and Gayle Wattawa, editor of Heyday's new anthology, New California Writing 2011. Then, at 12:30, I'll host a mini-roundtable on reviewing and criticism with Tom Lutz of the new Los Angeles Review of Books, Katrina vanden Heuvel of The Nation, and an editor from BookForum. Should be fun. Listen up, or come by the booth. The rest of the weekend finds me at the Santa Monica Review booth (#982) giving out free copies of the newest issue and yakking it up with anybody who wants to talk about books, creative writing, literacy, politics, art and, yes, community radio.
