Such a great event, go find a book of multiple books to read. So many choices to open your mind and expand your imagination. It's also a nice big community event to get people to go outside and see the world. Meet authors, hear a speech by some politician and laugh at how meaningless it is. Then find the comic section.

Trees must hate it though and see us a horrible monsters. If they have any intelligence we can't understand they must be horrified for killing thier friends and loved ones.
Parking at the USC campus will be $10.
