Join SPAWN at the
Los Angeles Times Festival of Books

The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books (LATFB) is billed as the nation’s largest public literary festival, having attracted around 140,000 people last year.

It wasn’t always this big, and some of us here at SPAWN remember its beginnings. The LATFB launched in 1996, the same year that SPAWN did. SPAWN has had a presence at this now-gigantic event almost every year since.

The LATFB will be held at the University of Southern California campus in Los Angeles, April 12-13, 2014.

How You Can Participate

SPAWN has secured two booths to accommodate our members. If you'd like to share in the event, we have several options for this major bookselling opportunity. You can receive incredible exposure for your book (and you)!

If you would like to attend the show in Los Angeles, you can sell your book from our booth:

If you can't attend the show in person, you can:

The SPAWN Catalog of Members’ Books and Services will serve as the brochure for all participants. Everyone visiting the SPAWN booth will walk away with one of our beautiful catalogs.
