Los Angeles Times Festival of Books...Jamie Lee Curtis & Rainn Wilson on stage today! Bookworms descend on USC!


Jada Pinkett Smith @ Festival of Books!

A few weeks ago, I posted a feature on the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, which is an annual event book-lovers look forward to with great anticipation each year.

Post: 04/06/2011

Fortunately, school children from Orange County tweeted me this week, which jogged my memory at the 11th Hour.

Yes, kids!

You will see me at  Book Fair tomorrow strolling around USC campus with my eye out for bargains and news scoops to report on at "The Tattler".

Thanks for the reminder, eh?

For readers at "The Tattler" who may have forgotten that the event runs today (April 30th) thru Sunday (May 1st), I have posted a run-down of the panel discussions and stage events that will be underway as this very post is published on the world-wide-web a few seconds from now.

See 'ya there, eh?
