LA Times Festival of Books!

We’ve been a little lax about posting lately since the kids have been wrapped up in their science fair projects, which are due next Monday. But I had to take some time to post about one of my favorite events: The LA Times Festival of Books, which is this coming weekend (April 21-22) at USC! This event is amazing…superstar authors, music, crafts, food, tons and tons of books, and it’s all FREE.  Parking is $10.

I don’t even want to look at all the panels I would LOVE to see because it would just bum me out. Since I am taking the kids, we will be hanging out mainly at the Target Childrens’ Stage…which is a good time too. Since three of the panels that our kids  would love all fall on Saturday, we will be heading there then…despite Mason’s 11:30 baseball game.  :-/  Here’s who we want to see:

12:55:  Jeff Kinney, Diary of a Wimpy Kid:  Cabin Fever

1:30:  Ozokidz (I’m a huge Ozomatli fan!)

2:45:  Tom Angleberger, Fake Mustache

There are a lot more authors too.  Check out the schedule here.
Hope you can check it out if you live in the area.  It is really a great vibe, all about books, and the kids can’t help but get in the book-loving spirit.
