Smokin’ Hot at the L.A. Times Festival of Books

2015 brings an exciting new opportunity for us at Prospect Park—at the L.A. Times Festival of Books this weekend, we’ll be joining our friends at Kaya Press, Writ Large Press, and the USC Creative Writing Department in sharing the Smokin’ Hot Indie Lit Lounge, which is (other than the fabled Green Room) the hippest place to be on campus. You’ll find it in the heart of Founders Park, near the Poetry Stage. Please come by to meet our authors and editors, get our books at bargain prices, meet Terra the tarantula, learn entertaining secrets from L.A.’s best caterers, and check out the many other happenings. Besides the Prospect Park events listed below, our pals at Kaya, Writ Large, and Tia Chucha Press will be keeping the lounge smokin’ with an incredible roster of events, from an appearance by star author Viet Thanh Nguyen to word games and haiku fortunes. Here’s the complete roster of events from all the booth’s partners. Be sure to stop by and say hello to the Prospect Park Books team.
