Los Angeles Times Festival of Books


I'm looking forward to heading to L.A. in April to speak at Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. This coincides with the U.S. paperback release of Mac Slater Versus the City.

The Festival happens on the USC Campus so it'll be fun to check out the delights of Downtown and East L.A., The Getty Museum in particular.

Here are a few of the cool cats speaking at this year's fest:
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Julie Andrews
Judy Blume
Libba Bray
Melissa de la Cruz
Marla Frazee
Jack Gantos
John Green
Maureen Johnson
Lauren Kate
Jeff Kinney
Patrick Ness
Shawn Thomas Odyssey
Lin Oliver
Mal Peet
Maggie Stiefvater
Wil Wheaton
Henry Winkler

  

I'm also heading back to the impossibly beautiful town of Claremont on the outskirts of L.A. for events with Mrs Nelson's Books who are worth following on Twitter! @mrsnelsonsbooks and for my first visit to Irvine, CA, thanks to the v. fine Whale of a Tale Children's Bookshoppe (@awhaleofatale)

Get Your Geek On : Mac Slater Hunts the Cool on the YALSA list of 2012 Popular Paperbacks. Lots of good teen reads if you're in the market.
