Cindy Frazier, city editor of the Laguna Beach Coastline Pilot, the Daily Pilot's sister paper, will read a sample of her writing during the Saturday morning portion of the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books at USC.
In an email to colleagues this week, Frazier announced that she has been invited to take part in "Dimestories," a three-minute prose reading event, scheduled for 11 a.m. at the festival's Etc. Stage.
"The piece, 'Bleeding Hearts,' was voted number one of all the pieces presented during the run up to the festival, so I'm pretty stoked about it," she said in her email.
Cindy's colleagues and the staff at the Times Community News group in Orange County wish her the best of luck Saturday.
In related news, at least three other writers with Orange County ties — T. Jefferson Parker, Mary Castillo and Barbara DeMarco-Barrett — will appear during the two-day LAT Festival of Books.
