LA Times Festival of Books Lineup

The annual festival announced its full schedule late last week, and as always, the crime fiction track is substantive and looks to be very entertaining, indeed.

It’ll be my first time at the LATFOB as I’ve been asked to moderate two panels: “Mystery, the Literary Detective” with Leslie Klinger, April Smith and Peter Robinson on April 26th at 11:30; and “Mystery: Starting a Series” with Sandi Ault, Christopher Reich and Susan Kandel on April 27 at 1:30.

The full mystery track appears after the jump.
