Bedrosian will be at the 2015 LA Times Festival of Books

Yes, indeedy. We’ll be at this year’s Los Angeles Times Festival of Books – Saturday, April 18 and Sunday, April 19. Our booth (062 on Trousdale Parkway) will be open from 10 am to 6 pm (Sat the 18th) and 10 am to 5 pm (Sun the 19th)  here at the USC campus in the almost heart of downtown Los Angeles.  We’ll have an hourly giveaway of books – books we’ve discussed on our podcast and at events as well as recent books we’ve highlighted on our blog. 

Hourly Giveaways and Daily Raffles at booth 062 

While the festival will be an opportunity for us to sign up new subscribers for our e-Newsletter, it will also be an opportunity for our followers to continue the conversations we’ve had recently about policy implementation and issues more broadly like inequality and the environment.

Take a look below at some of the other opportunities you’ll be able to have at the Festival. Or, print a copy to take with you to the Festival – don’t forget to stop by booth 062 to say “hello.”
