Become a participant.

The Festival Author Committee invites select authors to participate in readings and panel discussions. If you wish to be considered, please complete the form below.

Due to the volume of applications received, we are unable to respond to every applicant. Should a spot for you be available at the 2024 Festival of Books, you will be contacted by a member of the L.A. Times programming committee.

Signing up for an exhibitor booth does not come with a spot in the festival program. Please contact mattie.schaffer@latimes.com and ann.binney@latimes.com with any questions about programming.
