WHAT: Swerve Festival
WHO: Lots of filmmakers, musicians and other artist-types
WHEN: All weekend, check listings
WHERE: Mostly at Barnsdall Art Park, but check the site.

WHAT: Second Annual Los Angeles Archives Bazaar
WHO: Researchers, genealogists, history buffs.
WHEN: 10:30 a.m.
WHERE: Huntington Gardens
WHY: Anybody who has ever wanted to write about/research L.A. history should go to this thing. Amazing archives, free resources and lunch.

WHO: Readers, writers, bloggers, artists
WHEN: 10:00 a.m. to 6 pm.
WHERE: West Hollywood Park, 647 N. San Vicente Blvd.

easier to park.

WHERE: Barnes and Noble and the Grove
WHY: Snyder is signing Save the Cat! Goes to the Movies: The Screenwriter’s Guide To Every Story Ever Told, a sequel to his bestseller Save the Cat! The Last Book on Screenwriting You’ll Ever Need. We think it’s kinda funny that there’s a sequel.
