The literary festival season is heating up here in Southern California. And, I’m ready to roll. I wanted to mention a couple of events that I’ll be participating in over the next few weeks:
Pasadena LitFest and Literary Orange.
Pasadena LitFest: Saturday, March 17th I’m the opening act of this brand new gathering in Pasadena. I’ll be kicking off the event with a reading from my new book ( gulp. going public.) at 10:15 am. Then, I’ll be attending the many great panels that the organizers of LitFest have pulled together for the inaugeral year. Mona Simpson, Jonathon Gold, Michelle Hunevan, Lisa Yee, Sherri Smith, Denise Hamilton. It’s a fantastic list of authors, I must say. Good work, Larry Wilson and all the LitFest crew. I’ll also be signing books at the Prospect Park Tent at 1:00 with my PPB “stable mate, “ JD Rothman, author of The Neurotic Parents Guide to College Admissions. The event is free and right in Old Town Pasadena. Food trucks, of course. Click here for all the information on Pasadena LitFest.
(In a related note, JD Rothman is speaking and signing at Vroman’s this Saturday from 4 to 6, if you fit into the Neurotic Parent category! For more information, click here for the Vroman’s site.)
Literary Orange: Saturday April 14th at UC Irvine This long-established book event features Lisa See as the keynote speaker and then lots of panels with authors from Southern California. I’ll be on a panel called Coming of Middle Age with Sonya Sones moderated by Amy Alkon. Tickets for the day-long event are $60 and attendance in limited, so it won’t be a crush to get into any panels. For more information on Literary Orange, please click here.
