People of Letters

For a while now, I've been trying to pass myself off as a Woman of Letters. Finally I have proof! I am a Woman of Letter! And there's more where that came from.

This letter is by way of reminding you (because I didn't have an L) that Saturday, all day, the first annual Litfest Pasadena will be held at Central Park, south of Castle Green between Fair Oaks and Raymond.

The original date was rained out but that's not going to happen this time. You can take the train to DelMar Station (it's right across the street) and/or there are several lots nearby. It's going to be like a big fair, with food trucks, fun for the kids, and people of letters (people of several letters, in fact).

I'll be there as a volunteer in the morning, helping at one of the stages, and if that doesn't wear me out I'll be there as an attendee in the afternoon. So come on down. Everyone will be there: writers, publishers, editors, speakers and most of all, READERS, who tend to have more letters than you can count.

Jumpin' jehosophat, it's a weepin' W!

Able to weep tall buildings in a single stroke.

Thanks, V. I also have an R and a D and an E, so I'm on my way to verbosity.

Cliff, this one can at least weep a curb.

I'll be there. Any parking suggestions?

You have DREW? Or WERD? You're quite the lady of letters. I wish I could be at LitFest on Saturday, it'll be amazing. Take a hat and suncream and take lots of photos.

Karin's asked a good question - where will everyone park?

There is public parking nearby but isn't it pricey?

I would park at the Sierra Madre metro station and take the metro...

There are two city lots nearby--Del Mar Station and the one at the corner of Green and Raymond. Bit I recommend that people take the train to Del Mar because it's right there, directly across the street from the park and it's cheaper than paying for all-day parking.

There you are, Anonymous. You got stuck in my spam filter; I'm not sure why.
I think Del Mar Station is $6 for the day. I'm not sure about the other lot. But yes, it's much less hassle (and less money) to take the train.

Petrea Burchard said...

Parking at the Sierra Madre station is free, I believe.

Margaret said...

Free is always good. Sounds fun.

Ms M said...

Sounds like a good "bookfest". Looking forward to hearing about your experiences during Litfest.

Petrea Burchard said...

I intend to take a lot of pictures. I'll just hang my camera around my neck and hope it doesn't get too heavy.

Sounds like fun. Enjoy the day.
