WeHo Book Fair -- Something for Everyone
The West Hollywood Book Fair, now in it's sixth year, will take over West Hollywood Park this Sunday from 10am - 6pm. We like to think of the WeHo book fair as the calmer, cooler cousin to the LA Times Festival of Books - great authors, excellent panels, live readings and good food - but much easier to navigate. As with any festival, planning the who/what/when is key...especially when trying to pack it all into one day.
We're so impressed with the many kick-ass writers and panelists that are lined up, we don't know where to begin. Well, okay, if we had to start somewhere, we'd start with these:
To Blog or Not to Blog @ 11am
Adrienne Crew, Margo Candela, Kevin Roderick, Mark Sarvas
The Spirit and Craft of the Graphic Novel @ 12:15pm
Jessica Abel, Cecil Castelluci and David Mack
Around the World: Fiction in Foreign Lands @ 1:15pm
David Francis, Lisa Fugard, Gina Nahai, Ngugi Wa'Thiongo
Literary Foremothers: A Lesbian Tradition @ 2:15pm
Gabrielle Calvocoressi, Myriam Gurba, Ali Liebegott, Fiona Zedde
L.A. Stories: Fictitous Lives in the Mythic City @ 3:30pm
Noel Alumit, Will Beall, Gregory Hinton, Tara Ison
2007 Pulitzer Prize Winner Conversation @ 4pm
WordPlay: A New Spin on Storytelling @4:45pm
LA's best writers and storytellers read their true and hilarious tales while DJs spin real-time soundtracks. Hmmm....
And that's just one way to slice it! Imagine the possibilities! There will also be readings in The Robertson Salon, writing workshops in The Writing Room, spoken word delights in The Robertson Coffee House and more Manga/horrof/sci-fi than you (okay, maybe just we) can handle. With the stellar line-up of writers and moderators, it's a serious shame we can't attend every event in every nook of the park.
With so much on offer, we suspect we'll be hustling from one location to the next and sneaking into a few panels almost-but-not-quite late just by the skin of our teeth. Our advice? Check the schedule, mark-up your map and enjoy.
