Julie Fauble at last year’s Festival
IOBA’s Toothsome Twosome Will Be There
The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books again promises to be the book event of the year on the West Coast and one of the best in the nation. The two-day celebration of the written word is free to the public and attracted 140,000 booklovers last year. At least as many are expected to crowd the UCLA campus on Saturday and Sunday, April 26-27, for the 2003 Festival. And IOBA will be there, led by that toothsome twosome of Julie Fauble and Maria Bustillos, with “assorted henchmen, plus whichever IOBA members would like to show up and hang out,” as Maria puts it.
Festival events scheduled include lectures by noted authors, book reviews, writing workshops, and storytelling at two stages in the children’s area. A panel of respected judges from the literary world will also be on hand to award the annual Book Prizes for outstanding offerings from the past year.
The Festival promises something for every booklover, from seemingly endless rows of booths stocked with the biggest selection of books assembled annually on the West Coast to exciting events and demonstrations on six different stages. The Festival also features book signings by today’s leading authors, poetry readings, and an extensive children’s area and books.
If you would like a bookseller booth, contact Tina Pinelli at 213-237-7334 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Authors or anyone who would like to submit an author for consideration to participate in a Festival of Books panel, please call the author submission hotline at (213) 237-3364 or e-mail
Information currently is sketchy on the Festival website but more will posted in early to mid-March. URL ishttp://www.latimes.com/extras/festivalofbooks
