To Do: LA Times Festival of Books

With the increasingly imminent closure of Cook’s Library, this weekend’s LA Times Festival of Books is probably going to be the most food-focused literary event for some time. The usual association of authors is set to dominate the schedule (including perennial guest and exemplary human Ray Bradbury), but between the various culinary conversations (with LA Times Food Editor Russ Parsons and KCRW’s Evan Kleiman, among others) and the dedicated Cooking Stage (which will feature cooking demos and book signings), there’s going to be plenty to eat and read. The Cooking Stage schedule is as follows:

Saturday, April 25th
11:00am – JoAnn Cianciulli (L.A.’s Original Farmers Market Cookbook) & Amelia Saltsman (The Santa Monica Farmers’ Market Cookbook)
12:30pm – Dana Slatkin (The Summertime Anytime Cookbook)
2:00pm – Jamie Purviance (Weber’s Way To Grill)
3:30pm – Katie Lee Joel (The Comfort Table)

Sunday, April 26th
11:00am – Vinny Dotolo & Jon Shook (Two Dudes, One Pan)
12:30pm – Curtis Stone (Relaxed Cooking with Curtis Stone)
2:00pm – Barbara Fairchild (The Bon Appétit Fresh Fast Easy Cookbook)
3:30pm – Giada De Laurentiis (Giada’s Kitchen)
