It’s that time of year… 

Spring is in the air, and books are on our mind! One of the biggest book festivals in the world (and the largest in the United States!) is right around the corner, and many of PPB’s authors will be in attendance—both at our booth, and at other booths throughout the festival grounds (aka the USC campus). It’s going to be a lot of fun, and admission is free, so check out our schedule below to be sure to meet all your favorite authors!
