L. A. Times Festival of Books, 18-19 April 2015

March 15, 2015

This year’s Los Angeles Times Festival of Books will take place 18-19 April 2015 at the University of Southern California campus.

The Festival of Books began in 1996 with a simple goal: to bring together the people who create books with the people who love to read them. The festival has evolved to include live bands, poetry readings, chef demos, cultural entertainment and artists creating their work on-site. There’s also a photography exhibit, film screenings followed by Q&As and discussion panels on some of today’s hottest topics.

General admission is free, though various presentations require advance tickets. For more information and to reserve tickets, go to the Festival website.

SCWA: Terri Nolan, “Character Arc and Social Media”, 21 Mar 2015

March 15, 2015

The 21 March Southern California Writers Association meeting features mystery writer Terri Nolan speaking about how social media has invaded our lives, how we as writers and society at large are dealing with the cultural explosion, and how writers can leverage social media for their own benefit.

Terri’s the author of the Birdie Keane mystery series, which includes Burden of Truth and Glass Houses. She’s also an alum of PFL’s LIT UP! literary salons.

The meeting takes place at the Claim Jumper restaurant on 18050 Brookhurst Street in Fountain Valley. Doors open at 9:30 and the program begins at 10:00. Tickets are $25 for members, $30 for non-members (but if you’re a recent PFL member, check this week’s meeting notes for a special offer), and include a buffet lunch.
