The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books is a weekend event that celebrates the joy and magic of books, reading and literacy. This year it will take place April 24-25 at the UCLA campus. One of the authors who will be making a special speaking appearance is Susannah Carson, the editor of A Truth Universally Acknowledged: 33 Great Writers on Why We Read Jane Austen.
Susannah will be speaking on the panel “Writing on Writers”, which will take place April 25th at 10:30 AM. Those who attend will find out more about Susannah’s process in putting this book together, and what insights she gained into Jane Austen’s enduring popularity.
Just checked the definitions for ,slated.
Lucky I did. In Britain, apart from putting slates on a roof slated is used to mean reprimand or tell off in very strong terms.
I thought it a bit heavy that the book festival had been slated before it has even started.
I did not realise it means to plan or schedule also. A new one on me.
Just us Brits I'm afraid.
All the best,
