If you want experiences only the Golden State can offer, check out the Travel section’s California Bucket List. Then come tell us about your favorite places Saturday at the 2017 Festival of Books at USC.

How many have you done? And what’s on your bucket list? Our list grows every day with a new essential adventure, from easy to edgy.

L.A. Times Travel writer Christopher Reynolds will moderate a panel with Forbes travel blogger Andrew Bender, travel writer Michele Bigley and Charles Fleming, who writes about cars, motorcycles and urban hiking for The Times.

The panel runs 2:15 to 2:45 p.m. Saturday at the Travel & Wellness Stage.

The Festival of Books also will feature a performance by the TSA Chorus (yes, they have one!) from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m. Saturday at the Travel & Wellness Stage.

Events are free and open to the public.
