Based on statistics, California has the lowest literacy rate in the country, with 23% of them having little to no proficiency in reading skills. Though it seems all book fairs advocate literacy, LATFOB is more focused on championing literacy through book events. In this matter, the University of Southern California (USC) is the perfect location for the festival.

If you join LATFOB with ReadersMagnet, you have to be proud to advocate literacy through your books. The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books will be a setting where you don’t only broaden your market but encourage reading and learning as well. Of all the fun activities, the creation of books must be celebrated the most, together with authors, illustrators, and self-publishing agencies.

Displaying Literary Masterpieces

The LA Times Festival of Books will be filled with music, entertainment, and every imaginable activity you can think of in a festival. However, having LATFOB with ReadersMagnet and other traditional and self-publishing companies means getting an exhibition of literary works.

As an exhibitor, ReadersMagnet usually takes more than a hundred books at every event. From veteran to newbie authors, we make sure that fairgoers will not just enjoy our book displays but also learn from them. We also encourage participants to play with our Scavenger Hunt to hype the excitement with a brand new Kindle device as a prize.

Meeting Self-Published Authors

Most self-published authors are not popular in the market of books, but you could discover new knowledge from them as precious as gold. Literary and academic books from traditional publishing houses and educational publications are high priorities when it comes to advocating literacy. Nonetheless, meeting self-published authors could make a difference.

Self-published authors coming at LATFOB with ReadersMagnet are authoritative in their own right. They are experienced and well-versed in their chosen fields. Meeting and greeting them at the event could mean connecting with a new partner in advocating reading, writing, and learning. Check out our booth at LATFOB during the festival to see our scheduled authors for book signings.

Representing Self-Publishing

Self-publishing companies are helping indie authors to get a platform where they can present themselves and their books to a bigger audience. Beyond publishing books, ReadersMagnet helps build author branding and maximize opportunities for book marketing.

As a finalist of the BBB Torch Awards for Ethics in 2022, ReadersMagnet is more than glad to represent the industry at the LA Times Festival of Books. We believe the presence of self-publishing agencies in the book fair offers a positive outlook of having options to produce more books. More books mean more tools to use in advocating literacy not only to children but also to young people and adults.
