Who needs Coachella Weekend Two when you can have Bookchella? Er…the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books! For us, we prep for weeks to prepare our staff and outfit our booths with the best of the best. For you, make sure to pack a hat, sunscreen, plenty of water and don a pair of great walking shoes.
It’s always a fun, family friendly weekend with free admission!
This Saturday and Sunday – April 22 and 23 at USC Campus.
Saturday, April 22 Hours: 10am – 6pm
Sunday, April 23 Hours: 10am – 5pm
Our Main Store Booth is #117.
This booth will have TONS of great books and LOTS of fun book related items
(t-shirts, bookmarks, pins, pens etc.)
Our Children’s Booth is # 128.
This booth is self-explanatory but it will be packed to the gills
with books and fun things for your little ones.
We are also a special seller for the Los Angeles Times Stage. We’ll be selling the following books for you to get signed by some truly great authors! This booth is located right outside the L.A. Times Stage. How this works is the author will speak for about 40 minutes on the L.A. Times Stage, then will move over to the signing area which is directly across from our selling booth, which you will pass on the way over. We’ll have all these books plus more for you to peruse! Take a look at this schedule for a quick reference. As always, we will be available to answer questions on the day of!
