Dear Los Angeles

Dear Los Angeles --

I'm a comin' your way! If you live in the city of Angels, then come to the UCLA campus this weekend for the LA Times Festival of Books! On Saturday, I will be taking the Target stage at 12:20 PM and signing books afterward. Also taking the stage on Saturday are David Shannon, Megan McDonald, Robin Preiss Glasser, Anna Dewdney, Eric Carle, Playhouse Disney’s “Choo-Choo Soul”, Yo Gabba Gabba, Justin Roberts & the Not Ready for Naptime Players, Yeardley Smith (the voice of Lisa Simpson!) and Brooke Shields. Pretty nuts, huh? And then there is Sunday where you can catch another stellar line up (Peter Brown, Jon Scieszka, Jenni & Matthew Holm).

Check out the full schedule here.

All in all there will be 450 authors there on all sorts of stages. You can peruse that list here.

DJ Lance is awesome. And I've been a fan of the show since it was an Internet only thing. I'm so psyched that it has reached the audience that it has now!
