Panel discussions run the range of social justice, cultural equity, race relations, and author activists; inclusivity in graphic novels, writing the SoCal experience, writing complicated families, speculative fiction, true crime, podcasting and 2020, Middle Grade authors, the “new unionism,” publishing and publishers, and foodie LA.

The 10-minute interludes include pre-recorded mini interviews and “in conversation” segments; poetry readings from traditional LitFest locations as well as from unusual places; and literary, sci fi, and Locavore Lit LA readings.




LitFest Pasadena readings, panels, performances, and in conversation events are held in business and in courtyards throughout Pasadena’s historic, beautiful Playhouse District — all within walkable distance from one another. Many of the events will be held in the cool evening under the Playhouse District lights.
