A complete lineup of the panels and speakers at the August 26 Festival of Books can be found here. Admission to the event is free, though there is a small charge, $3, to attend the panel discussions. Tickets can be purchased online ahead of time. Of that fee, $1 from each ticket will be donated to the San Diego Council on Literacy. Events in the Children’s Pavilion are free.
Presentations will be held in four locations: Main Hall, McMillin Event Center; Foyer, McMillin Event Center; NTC Command Center, Room 1; and Children’s Pavilion, Legacy Center.
SDWEG members T. Jefferson Parker, Richard Lederer, Corey Lynn Fayman, Steve Breen, and Barrett Clemmenson Powell are among the speakers to be featured at the event. A number of speakers at past Guild programs are also featured in some of the panels.
A map showing the layout of the venues is also available at the same link as the schedule. Scroll down to locate the map.
The event organizers are also looking for volunteers to help as author escorts; speaker or event coordinators; program and venue support; greeter and information booth; children’s pavilion assistants; and support staff for vendors, exhibitors, and sponsors.
