    This Saturday and Sunday, the literary world turns its spotlight onto our sunny city for a weekend, and USC’s campus will be overrun by book lovers, booksellers, book writers, and all the other book people you can think of. We’ll be there, of course, holding down the fort at Booth #62, so come say hi!

    A few events to plan your visit around:

    On Saturday at 11:00 a.m., our author Suzanne Greenberg will be stopping by for a sneak peek signing of her new book, Lesson Plans, which comes out officially next month.

    Sunday at 10:30 a.m., you can catch Lian Dolan on a superstar panel of women writers, talking Fiction: Choices and Consequences (Conversation 2041) with Jane Green, Gigi Levangie, and Lacy Crawford, moderated by Leslie Schwartz. That will be in the Salvatori Computer Science Center (SAL 101).

    At noon on Sunday, Jennie Cook will be at our booth signing Who Wants Seconds? and sharing some delicious treats from the cookbook.

    And if you missed Lian Dolan‘s morning panel, you can catch her again at our booth, signing Elizabeth the First Wife and Helen of Pasadena at 1 p.m.

    Busy bee Naomi Hirahara has a full schedule of her own, which you can find here.

    Hope to see you there!… Read the rest
