Los Angeles Times Book Festival This Weekend Sat/Sun April 30 - May 1



Family Weekend Event

The Los Angeles Times annual two day book festival is this Saturday and Sunday.  With so many exhibitors and family friendly events going on simultaneously on various stages on the USC campus in L.A., it's good to know that The Times just launched its first mobile interactive guide to explore this weekend's Festival of Books

The Free download for iPhone, iPod Touch and Android features:
  • Customizable schedule of events

  • Integration with users' Facebook and Twitter accounts for posting photos, status updates and tweets
  • Simple access to the latest news from the Festival via Facebook and Twitter feeds. Plus, a real bonus when it comes to parking in L.A.,  USC traffic updates
The entire festival, including eight outdoor stages, hundreds of panels, exhibitors, book sellers and entertainment, will be located around the USC campus.  The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books is presented in association with USC.  Also, presenting sponsor Target, major sponsors Buick and GMC and the official ticketing provider is Eventbrite.
