Fall Into Reading
The West Hollywood "Fall Into Reading" Book Fair is this Sunday on October 3rd. Avid readers can visit with their favorite local and national authors at West Hollywood Park, 647 N. San Vincente Boulevard from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
The event has attracted a pretty heady mix of talent for a one-day schedule:
Actresses galore: Pamela Anderson and her trusty ghost writer, Eric Shaw Quinn, will stop in at the Book Soup Booth at 2:30 PM while Jasmin Guy visits Eso Won Books booth at 1:00 PM.
Pam Des Barres (I'm With the Band) will be on the "True Stories: Debunking Rock N Roll Myths" panel at 3:00 PM.
Michelle Huneven tempers the testosterone on the "Forever Hollywood" panel with Eric Garcia, Jerry Stahl and David Freeman (Oh, to be a fly on the wall in that green room...) at 12:30 PM.
David Kipen moderates the "Perspectives on LA" panel featuring Charles Phoenix and DJ Waldie at 3:30 PM.
Mostly, the festival features the usual LA lit suspects but there are some surprises.
Watch Princess Michael of Kent mingle with the Queens of WeHo on the "Constructing Biography Panel" at 11:00 AM. She shares the panel with A. Scott Berg...just keep her away from noisy restaurants in Baldwin Hills.
and, aptly, since West Hollywood hosts Little Russia too, there's a panel called "Russian Roots/American Soil" at 4:00 PM featuring Anatoly Gorbatyuk, Semion Prokatov and Viktor Rayzman.
Wish there were panels for Armenian-American and Persian-American writers, too. With this cast of authors, Jeffrey Eugenides and Carol Edgarian probably would have agreed to attend.
