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....

NEW YORK—There are author success stories. There's winning the lottery. And then there's Chad Harbach. A long-suffering, often-starving MFA graduate, Harbach spent much of his 20s and 30s working temp jobs so he could write a novel, sometimes with barely $100 in his bank account. He thought no one would ever read his book, titled "The Art of Fielding. " It featured, after all, some pretty ambitious literary writing, a prominent gay character and a baseball motif, all no-nos for anyone with aspirations to the fiction bestseller list.

Let the weekend begin: I like to start my weekend on Friday afternoons. I write all week so I stop at about 3 p.m. and drive down to the beach in Santa Monica to this English shop, the Continental Shop, on Wilshire, where I stock up on jams and other things I like. Then I go to the Third Street Promenade. Sometimes I'll have dinner at Ivy on the Shore. Book prowling: On the Third Street Promenade, I like Rizzolis. In Century City, I love going to Brentano's. Book Soup on Sunset is wonderful.

Mystery writers can be a dark lot. "When I was growing up, I was always interested in those books, ‘Women Who Kill,' " Megan Abbott, author of "Bury Me Deep," intoned as her audience laughed. She chuckled. "Strange kid." Across the UCLA campus Saturday, there were writerly confessions — and not just from the authors of noirish mystery tales — and political musings. Celebrities reflected on their lives, poets read from their works and a person or two could be found strolling the grounds in costume.
