The Details

Los Angeles Times Festival of Books (Weekend Events – January 17 or 18)

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the 2009 Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, to be held at UCLA. The Festival of Books began in 1996 with a simple goal: Bring together the people who create books and the people who love to read them. The Festival was an immediate success and has become Southern California’s major literary event. The fourteenth annual edition of the Festival of Books will be held on Saturday, April 25 and Sunday, April 26, and we would love to have you join us as a volunteer.

Last year over 130,000 people attended the Festival, which featured almost one hundred ticketed author events, children’s storytelling, poetry readings, book signings and nearly 500 exhibitor booths. The Festival’s success has been due in part to the generous assistance of volunteers who welcomed attendees, assisted with registration, staffed author events, supervised book signings and much more.

Some details about volunteering:

Volunteers will receive free parking, shuttle service from the parking lot, and lunch.

We will provide t-shirts for volunteers to wear and keep after the event. (Please wear khaki, or beige pants or shorts.)

The majority of volunteer activities require being on your feet for most of your shift. Please wear comfortable shoes.

Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older. You cannot bring children under the age of 18 with you during your shift.

In addition to signing up here – you MUST register on the Festival of Books Volunteer website.
