It’s challenging to find the words to describe the scope of the annual West Hollywood Book Fair, but that would be the perfect place to look for them. Hundreds of author events, workshops, readings, and panels span the universe of written-word genres. Of course, the booksellers themselves cover all forms of the printed word, including rare and collectible books, literary journals, comic books, and more. There are also independent publishers selling general fiction and non-fiction. From food and travel writers to science-fiction aficionados, storytellers, and all celebrities of the book world and beyond, this is a hands-on adventure in literature the Internet can’t beat. Lola T.
