Save and Misbehave: West Hollywood Book Fair

For some reason, people who hail from the East Coast are always a little too surprised to hear that we Angelenos actually read.  They’re of the belief that the only people who read in this city are the ones writing script coverage.  Au contraire, we say!  Prove each naysayer wrong this weekend at the West Hollywood Book Fair.

There will be pavilions for Mystery and Suspense, Fiction, Politics, Sci-Fi and more proving that not only do we read, but our tastes run the gamut.  You’ll find there’s much to learn from the various stages set up in at Book Fair, which can be found between Robertson and San Vicente Boulevards and between Santa Monica and Melrose.  Up on stage you will run into Niki Lee setting Dorothy Parker’s poetry to music, Norman Ollestad will be waiting for you in the Fact, Fiction, and Future Pavilion, while Edward Humes will be lecturing listeners about environmentalism, and Reza Aslan will have tons to say about art, politics, and the Arab-Muslim world.

With special guests, book signings, a children’s area, a “green room” with food from Pavilions and Urth Caffe, and all the lectures and performances you can imagine, the day will be fun-filled and quite exhausting.  All that reading really takes it out of you – we suggest a relaxing Saturday evening at the movies.

West Hollywood Book Fair is Saturday, October 3 from 10am – 6pm.  The borders are Santa Monica Blvd. (north), Robertson Blvd. (west), San Vicente Blvd. (east), and Melrose (south).  For more information, please click here.  AND for information on the free parking shuttle, please click here.
