Pasadena Festival of Women Authors


The Pasadena Festival of Women Authors on Saturday had a great line-up — Altadena novelist Michelle Huneven, top; Riverside novelist Susan Straight, second picture down; Heidi Durrow, whose “The Girl Who Fell from the Sky” was a New York Times best-seller; and Fannie Flagg, of “Fried Green Tomatoes” fame.

All gave moving and funny talks to a sold-out lunch crowd in the annual benefit for the Pasadena Senior Center.

Two of the above are also starring at our LitFest Pasadena March 17 in Central Park — Susan is on Jervey Tervalon’s morning panel, and I’ll be interviewing Michelle, along with Mona Simpson, in the early afternoon.

Be there!
