On Saturday morning, as shoppers strolled down Brand Boulevard in Glendale, many noticed a group of people filling the Mystery and Imagination Bookstore. A few peeked in and asked what the excitement was about. “Ray Bradbury is coming,” said one of the patrons. “He will be signing books.” More often than not that was enough to get those curious on-lookers into the store. More than 200 people lined the aisles of the store and everyone had at least one Bradbury book in hand.

Ten Years Ago: Two men wearing Ninja masks robbed Citizen's Business Bank in La Cañada on a Friday afternoon, shortly before closing. The men waved their guns in the air and pushed one teller to the ground during the robbery, according to the branch manager. Twenty Years Ago The small U.S. Post Office substation inside Marsh's Village Pharmacy was temporarily closed after burglars cut a hole in the drugstore's roof and ceiling and raided the store, taking $10,000 in stamps, $300 in currency and about $500 worth of drugs.

Valley View by Fereva I experienced one of those rare occasions last weekend- when fascinating moments came together in a spontaneous manner, and for three nights running I attended several amazing events. Doncha' love it when the great stuff just comes together- especially if you need to get out of the doldrums and into the mood? The great mood, that is. First, last Friday evening, literary icon Ray Bradbury spoke at my alma mater, UC Santa Barbara. Now I know in La Cañada Flintridge where folk fuss over who's tops- UCLA or USC, this will sound like heresy: But ultimately, I bailed to UCSB.

Ten Years Ago Destructive winds battered La Cañada for a 36-hour period in early January 2003, uprooting trees and downing power lines. Two homes, one on Lombardy Drive and the other on Angeles Crest Highway, sustained heavy damages when large trees crashed through their respective roofs. La Cañada Elementary School was closed temporarily due to a power outage. City officials saw one silver lining to the windstorm: The large bucket on a pole advertising Kentucky Fried Chicken was blown down, effectively bringing to an end the need to negotiate further with the shopping center's owners to remove it and replace it with a smaller, monument-style sign.

Valley View by Fereva I cannot imagine a world without books. Happily, I am far from alone. Last weekend during its tenth anniversary, the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books drew thousands upon thousands to the UCLA campus. Think of it as a Disneyland for readers: Entertainment, food and merchandise; yes, yes and yes. But above all, a wonderland for people who read books and for those who write them. Other than parking, entrance to the festival was free. Both days were booked solid with author panel discussions or one-on-one interviews, all open to the public and held in various auditoriums across campus.
