Upcoming Events

April 24-25: Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. Admission is free, parking is $9. Located on the UCLA Campus. Two days of being with “people who create books and with those who love to read them.” More than 400 authors will be in attendance to talk about the art of writing and to sign their books. The festival also offers panel discussions. This is where I have met several: Larry King, Julie Andrews, Brooke Shields, Carolyn See, Mitch Albom, way too many to list. This year some top names: Stephen J. Cannell, Mary Higgins Clark, Antwone Fisher, Elizabeth George, Louis Gossett Jr., Bernadette Peters and that’s only to the P’s. For more information go to:

April 10-24: Stop by the Salvation Army, near the DMV in San Clemente, 2727 Via Cascadita and see what two Saddleback College students have designed with items from the warehouse. They are competing with three other students for a first place win in eco-friendly designs. You can also bid on the items in the showroom as part of a two-week auction. I’ve got to check this out. The money will go to the Salvation Army’s Anaheim Adult Rehabilitation Center. Read the story:

May 8-9: “A Woman of Independent Means,” starring Lissa Layng. Fremont Center Theatre, 1000 Fremont Ave., South Pasadena. 8 p.m. May 8 with brownies and champagne at intermission and 3 p.m. May 9 with a Mother’s Day Tea in the garden at 2 p.m. You won’t want to miss this one woman show.
