  • Happy birthday, Shakespeare! Talk to us about cities.
  • Are writers exploited?
  • The seventeenth annual Los Angeles Festival of Books took place last weekend. Check out the fantastic lineup.
  • A roundup of women’s travel diaries through the ages.
  • Busloads of librarians and book-vending dogs! How did you celebrate World Book Night?

      Thanks for this post Sadie, but just to clarify: The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books was this past weekend.

      Re exploitation: This has become a culture of struggling for the crumbs. Maybe the job of literature now is to help us learn how to live with that.
