Event Description

Los Angeles Times Festival of Books

LAT-Festival-of-Books-logo-2017Every great story opens new worlds.

Since 1996, the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books has been held annually in Los Angeles in order to bring together the people who create books with the people who love to read them.

It is the largest and most prestigious book festival in the country, it attracts more than 150,000 book lovers each year — and IWOSC is proud to be a long-time participant.
