April 18: LA Times Festival of Books. I'll be moderating a panel featuring Mallory Ortberg, Issa Rae, and Pamela Ribon. Admission is free, but all advance online tickets have been claimed. However! You might still be able to get in: A limited number of tickets will be available at the on-site ticket booth on Saturday. Every venue has a standby line, and at 10 minutes prior to the event, they start giving away unclaimed seats to people who are waiting.
