It's the last weekend in April. To an author, especially one living on the West Coast, that can only mean one thing -- The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books!

The LA Times Festival, which is reported to be the largest book festival in the nation, is an annual event that takes place on the UCLA campus the last full weekend of April. This year the dates are Saturday and Sunday, April 28-29. Over the two days, 130,000 plus people will visit booths representing anything and everything to do with the written word, with something of interest for every member of the family. There are discussion panels, good food and special events for the kiddies. Warning: Bring your walking shoes.

Sisters In Crime/Los Angeles is always in attendance at the Festival and this year is no exception. We will be hosting a very large booth in front of Royce Hall (booth #355) and will feature at least 8 authors signing at all times. Drop on by and say hello!

Besides working most of the weekend at the SinC/LA booth, I will also be signing my books from 12-1 pm at the Mystery Book Store Booth (booth #411)

So round up the whole family, dress comfortably, and come on down for a day or two of great entertainment and fun.

Sue Ann, I'll be missing the Festival for the first time in 4 years - but I'll be out of town.

And I am so delighted that our own Naomi Hirihara won the Edgar! Say hello for me at the Festival - and have a wonderful time!
