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.
SAVE THE DATES! Because of precautions that need to be taken for Covid-19, we will be having online Zoom meetings for the remainder of the year. The first meeting took place on Wednesday, August 12 at 3 pm. It was a check-in meeting to see how everyone is doing during this pandemic. We had new and established members participate. We spoke about the type of work we do and shared valuable information. We all learned from one another.
The next meeting will be held on October 21 and will be a professional development meeting with a guest speaker. Our final meeting of the year will take place on December 9; it’ll be an outreach meeting with another organization. Mark your calendars. Additional details to follow.
The Leimert Park Village Book Fair was scheduled for August. There has been no official word of its cancellation. Perhaps it will take place virtually. We’ll let you know when we get the official word.
UPDATE: On August 7, it was announced that the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books will now be virtual. It will start on October 18 and will run for four weeks. It will include author panels and readings. The full panel will be announced mid-September. Now you can enjoy the author panels and readings at your leisure in the comfort of your home over four weeks! The 2021 Festival of Books will take place April 17-18.
We had two local coffee/lunch gatherings in the Westside and a few months later in Valencia. Another gathering will take place in the San Gabriel Valley (maybe Pasadena or Arcadia) as soon it’s allowed for a group to gather safely in person.
