After 15 years at UCLA, the newspaper’s annual book fair has relocated to the campus of its rival. Dozens of indoor venues as well as seven outdoor stages host panel discussions, author readings, book signings, Q&As, celebrity appearances, cooking demonstrations, and live music. Writers slated to speak include Patti Smith (whose Just Kids recently won the National Book Award), T.C. Boyle, Walter Mosley, Maxine Hong Kingston, and Jonathan Lethem. Panel passes are available beginning April 11, and individual tickets are available April 24. More information.
