Attention LA Fans: Last week I posted the news that Veronica Roth will be at the LA Times Festival of Books and today you can finally order your tickets! There are 3 ticket options: Festival Passes, Conversation Tickets and On-Site Conversation Tickets:
1. Festival Passes are available for purchase here.
The Festival Pass is $30 and is the best way to make sure you see your favorite authors. Each Festival Pass includes:
- Opportunity to reserve up to eight Conversation tickets, free of any service charges, before they are made available to the general public
- One official Festival of Books 2013 poster, mailed to the shipping address provided during your order
- Two free tickets to attend the 2013 Los Angeles Times Book Prizes ceremony on April 19 at USC’s Bovard Auditorium
- Exclusive opportunity to purchase limited-quantity valet parking at the event (while supplies last)
2. Free Conversation Tickets will be available online starting Sunday, April 14, 9 a.m. There is a $1 service fee applied to each ticket reserved.
3. Free on-site Conversation Tickets
A limited amount of tickets for each Conversation, while supplies last, are also distributed on site at the Festival of Books ticketing booth on the day of the Conversation — free of service charges. Visit booth #464.
Veronica Roth’s conversation number is: Conversation 1094. If you buy a festival pass, you can reserve your conversation passes already so make sure to click on Veronica’s number for your chance to see her. Click here for a list of the schedule and the other conversations that will be held at the event.
If you do not buy a festival pass and are only looking to see Veronica or a just a couple authors, individual conversation tickets go on sale April 14 at 9 am. These are only $1 for the reservation.
Veronica Roth’s conversation will take place on Saturday April 20th at 4:00 pm at the Norris Theater in USC. She will be speaking about: Young Adult Fiction: The Outer Limits alongside with Lauren Oliver, Lissa Price and Victoria Schwab (and Kerri Majors as moderator). Remember, if you book Festival Passes make sure to reserve Conversation 1094 to see Veronica Roth speak and if you do not book Festival Passes, wait until April 14th and book the reservation. I would not recommend waiting until the actual festival to book the tickets because there might not be enough room left, so if you don’t do it now with festival passes, definitely spend that one dollar to book them on the 14th!
