It's a busy literary week in the City of Angels, and we wanted to make sure our readers were all up to speed on what's what.
Of course, no literary Angeleno needs to be reminded about the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, the nation's biggest event of its kind. It rolls into town for the weekend, and the full schedule can be found here. (And yes, we'll be covering it again this year for all those who can't make it.)
As a warm up, we encourage you to check out Jane Smiley's LAPL Aloud lecture tomorrow evening, "The Novel! Why There's Nothing Quite Like It!" Reservations recommended.
Finally, TEV readers are invited to attend Granta's L.A. launch party on Saturday evening. The party will be held at Equator Books in Venice, details below. The price of admission is a book purchase to help support Equator. If you're coming down, please do RSVP so they know how many folks to expect.
