The annual Los Angeles Times Festival of Books has the sparkle of something new this time around — its venue. After 15 years at UCLA, the two-day festival has moved to USC. What remains constant are the oodles of authors, panels, readings, signings, cooking demos and plenty to interest young readers — not to mention dozens of exhibitor booths for publishers, bookstores, literary magazines and local organizations such as WriteGirl and 826LA. Notable participants this year include Patti Smith, Dave Eggers, Jamie Lee Curtis, Ted Danson, T.C. Boyle, Thomas Keller, Patton Oswalt and R.L. Stine. USC, 3551 Trousdale Parkway, L.A. Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sun. 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Free. (213) 237-BOOK. events.latimes.com/festivalofbooks.
