This weekend: LA Times Festival of Books on the USC campus!

It’s been two nights since the Machine of Death Half-Birthday Party and Talent Show and I’m still super excited about it! Thanks so much to everyone who came out to see us in Hollywood, it was an absolute blast. I’ll be talking more about it soon, and in the coming days and weeks we’ll be posting videos of the acts up on machineofdeath.net.

This weekend, I’ll be with Smilin’ Dave Kellett at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, which is a huge, absolutely free event held on the USC campus. (Note — in years past it’s been at UCLA! This year it’s at USC, for the first time.) It’s super-cool because you can just walk in and browse all the tents and booths, or check out their schedule for author talks and panel discussions.

Dave and I will be at Booth 871, which (if you know the USC campus) is directly in front of the Doheny Library on Childs Way. The library is the one with the pin in the graphic below:

If you don’t know the USC campus, it won’t matter what I say anyway. So just follow your nose! Sniff out the pleasing musk of my pheromones. Not in a gross way though. OR, if you INSIST, you can consult maps of the show here.

See you there!
