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.
