"The Far and the Near: Traveler Tales" will be one of 62 author panels featured at the second annual Los Angeles Times Festival of Books next Saturday and Sunday at UCLA's Dickson Plaza.
The travel panel--which will start at 1 p.m. Saturday in Rolfe Hall Room 1200 on the campus--will feature as its moderator Don George, cyber-columnist for GNN and former San Francisco Examiner travel editor.
Panelists will be Cees Nooteboom ("Roads to Santiago"), Al Martinez ("City of Angles" and the forthcoming "I'll Be Damned if I Get Stuck in Oakland") and Larry Habegger, a syndicated travel columnist and senior editor of the "Traveler's Tales" book series.
To ensure seating at this and other author panels, free tickets are available through Ticketmaster at the Pantages Theater, 6233 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles, and at all Tower Record and Ritmo Latino record locations. Free tickets also will be available at the festival.
