Book-lovers of all ages are invited to the annual two-day Festival of Books held at the USC campus. In this book fair gone wild you can browse stalls from a variety of booksellers, hear author readings, get your books signed, and see culinary expos from cookbook authors. Discover new titles, watch screenings, enjoy live music, and get the chance to meet some of your favorite authors. Past events have attracted everyone from Dave Eggers, Batman comic book writers, Margaret Atwood, and the late Ray Bradbury.
