Jumping On The FOB Bandwagon

Westwood, CA

As others have mentioned, the L.A. Times today released their schedule for the 2007 Festival of Books at UCLA.

Aside from the excellent lineup of mystery and crime authors doing panels, like Laura Lippman, George Pelecanos, Will Beall, T. Jefferson Parker, Jan Burke and lots more, there are also the signings and booths on the grounds.

Mysterious Galaxy and The Mystery Bookstore are always there. The Sisters In Crime LA and the Southern California Chapter of the MWA have a booth.

I hear rumours (so don't quote me) that Naomi Hirahara, Christa Faust, and Duane Swierczynski are going to be there. So bring your books and get 'em signed.

I'll be going on about this again, believe me, but if you're planning on attending make sure you know what panels you want to see and get tickets early. They go on sale at noon on April 22nd at area Ticketmaster outlets.

Thanks for the mention, Steve. It's no rumor! I'll be there, along with Victor Gischler and Sean Doolittle. Can't wait.
