I spoke with Jamie Lee Curtis this week for LAmag.com about the upcoming L.A. Times Festival of Books at USC, where she will speak on the Target Children’s Stage on Saturday. Curtis’s recent book, My Mommy Hung the Moon: A Love Story (HarperCollins) has me thinking a lot about motherhood this week, and I’m looking forward to reading it to the kids (seems like a sweet Mother’s Day gift, too, for moms with little ones). The kids will be joining me at the festival, although I’ll get the chance to sneak into a few adult panels as well. And of course I’m interested to see how the festival plays in its new home at USC this year after it spent its first 15 years at UCLA. Want some tips for what to check out?
