Macros are a powerful tool for editors, but learning how to record one—and how to use...
Welcome to the Los Angeles Area EFA Chapter page. EFA-LA is open to all EFA members in the Los Angeles area. If you fall a little outside the area—from the desert to the sea—consider yourself welcome too.
Happy 2020! We have lots of great events coming up. Unfortunately, because of the corona virus, some events are cancelled or postponed.
UPDATE: The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books scheduled for April has been postponed because of the corona virus. It will be moved to October. More later as more information becomes available.
The March 6 hands-on macro workshop at the Santa Monica Public Library was a great success!
All in-person chapter meetings are suspended until further notice because of the corona virus. So our April 2 spring meeting is cancelled. We are hoping to reschedule it later in the year. No word yet if our July 9 meeting at Vroman’s will be affected. Stay tuned for more updates. Our next scheduled meeting is planned for July 9 at Vroman’s in Pasadena and in October (date to be determined) in the Westside. As expected, the LitFest in Pasadena scheduled for May 16-17 has been cancelled. Other events still scheduled include the Leimert Park Village Book Fair (end of August) and the LA Times Festival of Books (postponed until October). Let us know if you’re interested in volunteering for these events.
We’re also planning local coffee/lunch gatherings. The first one was held in the Westside in December. The second one was held in February in Valencia. Another will occur later in the year in the San Gabriel Valley.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available. We look forward to a productive year with something for every member!
