Festival of Books keeps pace with written word

Festival of Books at USC 2014

USC Senior Vice President for University Relations Thomas Sayles and Times publisher and CEO Eddy Hartenstein kicked off the two-day festival April 12, backed by the USC Trojan Marching Band.

“We are really proud to host this festival for the fourth year,” said Sayles, noting that 150,000 guests were expected to attend. “USC easily serves as home to the festival because the campus pulsates with intellectual energy, curiosity and vitality,” he noted.
