Posting will be light (if that) this weekend due to time commitments at the Festival of Books thrown at UCLA by the Los Angeles Times. One of my roles is to interview Times Editor Dean Baquet about the newspaper on Sunday afternoon in Schoenberg Hall. Feel free to email suggested questions or topics you'd want to hear him address.
I always enjoy meeting LA Observed readers around the festival, which is free except for parking. Stop by and say hello if you're nearby. Here's my schedule:
