I am looking forward to both my events this Saturday: Cressida Cowell’s How To Train Your Dragon at 11:30, and Danielle Trussoni’s Angelology at 4. How to Train Your Dragon sounds like it would have been right up my alley about 10 years ago, and Angelology is selling quite well and getting good reviews.
However, it does mean I’ll be at Vroman’s all day (boo hoo, I know, my life is soooo hard), and I probably won’t have time to go to the ARTTalk Festival. This totally awesome-sounding festival is being put on by the Playhouse District Association and Boston Court Performing Arts Center in honor of the spoken word and the arts. Including performances by storytellers, actors, musicians, and even readings from some authors that have appeared at Vroman’s, the Festival has two stages, 6 hours of programming, and no entry fee. That’s right, it is TOTALLY FREE. Go (after your event of choice, of course), mainly because I can’t!
I particularly want to see Nevenka, the LA-based choral group that will be performing songs from Eastern Europe, which are always very interesting and different, and the taiko drumming group. Also, quick plugs to Ian Whitcomb and Rosalba Martinez‘s appearances (at 1:30, and 2, respectively); I hosted both of their events at Vroman’s in the past six months, so you can trust me when I say they will be highly entertaining half-hours.

Time: 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
Location: Boston Court Performing Arts Center, 70 N. Mentor Ave., Pasadena.
