Come join Rare Bird at the 2017 LA Times Festival of Books!

In addition, certain Rare Bird authors will also be participating in official LATFB panels throughout the weekend, including:

Saturday, 3 pm, Taper Hall 201: Martin Pousson, author of Black Sheep Boy, will participate in a discussion entitled "Writing Gay Literature in Los Angeles." He will be joined by Alex Espinoza and David Francis.
