Los Angeles Times Festival of Books

 

 

The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books
Saturday, April 9 and Sunday, April 10
University Park Campus
Admission is free and open to everyone. Tickets required for some events.
Enjoy two days of music, comedy, film, art, food, and, of course, books, as USC hosts the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. The largest festival of its kind in the country, the festival will feature hundreds of exhibitors, dynamic conversations, fantastic performances, gourmet food trucks, and activities for all ages. Among the hundreds of speakers are beloved authors such as Joyce Carol Oates, Carrie Brownstein, Cassandra Clare, Michael Connelly, and Arianna Huffington. As host of the festival, USC will present live entertainment and panels by USC faculty and students in two venues. The USC Stage in Hahn Plaza, at the center of campus, will feature performances by the Trojan Marching Band; musicians and bands, including ALAJE, SAKURA Cello Quintet, I See Hawks in L.A., and the USC Saved by Grace Gospel Choir; Oliver Mayer’s Big Dog on Campus for kids; and much more. Conversations featuring USC authors in Wallis Annenberg Hall will explore such topics as the medical science of longevity, homelessness in L.A., the presidential primaries, art as activism, and more, including a conversation with National Book Award–winning poet Robin Coste Lewis.
