Five More Journalists Join the Orange County Register

The hits just keep on coming down in Santa Ana, with the Orange County Register adding a features writer, a breaking news reporter, a baseball writer and a pair of copy editors.

Pedro Moura (pictured) comes to the Angels-Dodgers beat from ESPN LA, where he had been covering USC sporting matters since 2009. His duties at the paper will include pinch hitting as needed for staffers Jeff Fletcher and Bill Plunkett.

One of feature writer Samantha Dunn‘s first tasks meanwhile will be to contribute to the paper’s January 26 edition of “Celebrations,” a recently launched monthly section devoted to newly married couples and other happy unions.

TONIGHT: Book Party for Critter Literature Anthology Cherished

This evening Village Books of Pacific Palisades will be hosting a reading and party for Cherished: 21 Writers on Animals They Have Loved & Lost. The book, a highlight of the critter literature genre*, feature essays by noted authors that include Jane Smiley, Carolyn See, and Joe Morgenstern.

The event tonight will feature readings by contributors Billy Mernit, Samantha Dunn, Judith Lewis, and the Cherished editor, Barbara Abercrombie. Animals aren’t officially allowed, but we have a feeling there will be pups in the audience just the same.

7:30 pm, @ Village Books, 1049 Swarthmore Ave. Pacific Palisades. More info at the bookstore website.

*Is critter literature considered an actual genre? Let’s assume that it is, and that it must be what people are referring to when they talk about Crit-Lit.
