Coming Attraction: Los Angeles Times Festival of Books

Parents, get your little readers ready! The annual Los Angeles Times Festival of Books will be arriving at USC this weekend, and there are tons of fun events for kids and parents.

Yes, parents, too! There's even a "date night" option for those looking to get literary after dark.

On Saturday, April 12, notable names such as actor LeVar Burton, chef Giada de Laurentiis and author Chris Raschka will be taking over the Children's Stage to present books and other fun presentations for the kiddos. The Natural History Museum will even bring a little dino magic to the stage.

On Sunday, April 13, author Jon Klassen, actor/director Diego Luna and Lucky Diaz & the Family Jam Band will be on hand.

You can also catch conversations with famous moms, including Mayim Bialik, Sandra Tsing Loh and Alicia Silverstone.

And for the first time, parents can engage in the Festival After Dark (time to call the babysitter!). This Saturday night event features Wits, a public radio comedy program that incorporates comedy, conversation and music. Margaret Cho and Superchunk will be there to entertain you.

Hope to see you there!
