LA Times Festival of Books (Cooking Stage)
May 1, 2011 § 1 Comment
I am so excited that the festival changed it’s location to USC! It’s free to attend, but might be a pain to find parking. That shouldn’t be a surprise if you are a LA native. I hope you had a chance to check it out. If not, come today!
“The festival was an immediate success and has become the largest and most prestigious book festival in the country, attracting more than 140,000 book lovers each year.”
My excitement is not so much for the books, but for the people coming to present on the cooking stage.
It started yesterday, but today is when all the cool presenters come. Check out the program schedule below. I’m amazed by the chefs that are coming. Exciting!
