Los Angeles Book Festival

The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books is a book festival that began in 1996 with a simple goal of bringing together the people who create books and people who love to read them.

The festival was an immediate success, with bands performing, poetry readings and master classes. There is also a photography exhibition, film screenings, and a Q&A session on current topics.
