Wednesday, April 27 - Festival of Books
Wednesday at 8 PM on Bibliocracy it's time to get ready for this weekend's 16th annual Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, Saturday, April 30 and Sunday, May 1 at the campus of the University of Southern California. (Note new location!) KPFK is a media co-sponsor, and will broadcast live on Sunday morning. Tonight on Bib I'll run through the panels and talks with help from my guest, LA Times Books Critic David Ulin. Ulin discusses some of his favorite books nominated for the Book Prize, and we both do our very best to convince you to go to the event website and plan your weekend attendance at one of the country's premiere literary, community, cultural and political events...all wrapped up into one. See the site for schedule of both days, participants and vendors, including many bookstores and nonprofit organizations, publishers and author booths: http://events.latimes.com/festivalofbooks/. Santa Monica Review will be there, and I'll be broadcasting live starting at 10:30, followed by Ian Masters, Maria Armoudian and Terrence McNally, the usual great Sunday morning public affairs lineup. See you at the Festival, at USC. Thanks for listening on the radio or online live, and downloadable from the KPFK station archives, free, fro 90 days.
