Book Fair


October 17, 2020
April 2021

Although the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books has gone virtual for the Fall 2020. GLAWS wanted to provide it's authors with the best virtual platform to promote themselves and their books.

Each author will have a page with their bio and photo, plus photo of their book. We will have video interviews of each author and a video of each author reading from their book. Each page will also have a link(s) as to where fans/book buyers will be able to purchase autographed books.

This will be an opportunity for thousands of book fans to connect with their readers for the next eight months, when hopefully, the world will have established a new safer normal, and we can return to USC in April 2021 for an in person experience.




You may a letter with the following information:

  • Your Full Legal Name
  • Pen Name (if any)
  • Contact information: Phones, emails, address, etc.
  • A short bio. We will ask for a longer one and photos later
  • Book Titles and genre. (Yes, you may sell more than one title.)
  • Format: State if your work will be sold as hard copies, CDs, DVDs, or Online E books. More authors are selling digital formats. Yes, you may promote them to event attendees using bookmarks and fliers. This is acceptable, but not ideal. We recommend that you have physical copies for display and impulse sales.
  • Time slots you want (limit one per day)
  • Any other information essential to your qualifications and appearance.
  • Include your donation check/money order with your letter by USPS to:

    The Greater Los Angeles Writers Society
