Hollywood Celebrities Meet Their Readers, 50 Years of Nostalgia and Pure Country Music in one Weekend



Celebrities turned authors are looking for their reading fans. The valley’s major university is looking for alumni from the last 50 years and country music is looking for its music fans. Spring is here in Southern California and it’s clearly evident in all three of these outdoor festivals, April 25 and 26. With near perfect temperatures that southern California is known for it promises to be a fun-filled weekend. One can enjoy the Celebration of the Written Word at the Los Angeles Times Book Festival, 50 years of history in the making at the University of Southern California, Northridge or listen to pure country music at the Stage Coach Music Festival.

A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE
From acres of wheat fields and orange trees the San Fernando College as it was called has welcomes students for 50 years. It has become a campus that continues to welcome students each semester and send those graduates into the world. The campus now known as the University of Southern California, Northridge, (CSUN) has an academic population each year that is larger than the number of residents that lived in the valley when the campus first opened in 1948. www.csun.edu
