Living the Bookish Life

Aldous Huxley said, "The proper study of mankind is books." 

They are varied and magical.  I suppose that makes the Los Angeles Times’ Festival of Books an even more appropriate visitor to the University of Southern California. 

Over two days in April, dozens of authors read aloud, discuss, demonstrate from, and (yes, of course) sell their books.  USC campus will be full of book stalls, discussions, poetry readings, and music stages.  Some of the celebrities sharing their works with us include Marlo Thomas, Alicia Silverstone, Maria Shriver, Rachel Zoe, and celebrity chefs Giada de Laurentiis and Roy Choi. 

It’s FREE (except for some of its special events).  And, we are so lucky our residents can walk from their apartments on Ellendale Place and not have to pay $10 for parking!
Saturday, April 12 | 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Sunday, April 13 | 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
