Daily Mirror at the Festival of Books
I planned to not say very much about appearing at the Festival of
Books, but people have been asking about "History: The Underbelly of
California," which will be presented at 2 p.m. Sunday at Haines 39. The
panel will feature Richard Rayner, author of the forthcoming book "A
Bright and Guilty Place"; David Ward, author of "Alcatraz: The Gangster
Years" and be moderated by author and former Times reporter Miles
Naturally, I'm quite flattered to be included in this company. Keith Thursby, the other half of the Daily Mirror, will be available too in case there are any questions about the Daily Mirror's sports coverage. Keith tells me tickets are "sold out," although people may be able to get in on a standby basis.
