Check It. LAT Festival of Books.

It was another beautiful weekend at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books at UCLA. Somehow the weather always ends up being perfect on these two late April days, and it sets the mood for lots of bookish fun outdoors (and indoors at the panel sessions) in Westwood.

This was my first year participating as a non-LAT staffer, and it felt really good to be included. It was great to see the familiar faces of Steve Lopez, Patt Morrison, and Sue Horton in the green room. David Ulin, Nick Owchar, Carolyn Kellogg and web producer extraordinaire Mary Forgione all made this year's festival go better than ever.

I wrote about Bernadette Peters (pictured) and her children's book "Stella is a Star", a panel that included Warren Beatty biographer Peter Biskind, and a panel called "The Illusion of Being Ordinary" moderated by Susan Salter Reynolds that included Dylan Landis.
