http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61sK5DDQ6dL._SL500_.jpgOne of the reasons I’m here in Palm Springs this week is to catch up on my reading!

I’ve finishing up the three books you see featured here – Confessions of a Prairie Bitch by Alison Arngrim, You’ll Never Blue Ball In This Town Again by Heather McDonald and Satiristas! Comedians, Contrarians, Raconteurs and Vulgarians by Paul Provenza and Dan Dion.

The reason I’m on a deadline is because this Sunday (Sept. 26) is the Ninth Annual West Hollywood Book Fair and I am moderating a panel with these authors called Let Me Entertain You: Memories, Histories and Stories on and off the Stage.

Alison’s book is filled with all kinds of behind-the-scenes stuff from her many years on Little House on the Prairie and, trust me, Melissa Sue Anderson does not come off well. Can’t wait to dish!

Heather, a writer and producer on Chelsea Lately,  is just so shockingly open in her book about her years as a virgin which lasted longer than most people. I’ve got lots of questions for her!

Provenza’s interviews and Dion’s photos are featured in this amazing collection of interviews with the likes of Stephen Colbert, Bill Maher, Jay Leno, Craig Ferguson, Conan O’Brien, Robin Williams and Lily Tomlin who offer insight into what makes them tick, what drives them and what drives them crazy.

There’s going to be a lot to cover!

I would love to see lotsa of Greg In Hollywood readers there! Our panel takes place from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. at the That’s Entertainment Pavillion. The fair is at West Hollywood Park and there is free parking across the street at the Pacific Design Center.

Here is a LINK to the fair’s website so you can check out the full schedule.

I’ve gone to this event just about every year and it just gets better and better. Last year, Carol Channing and Bruce Vilanch were In Conversation and were so hilarious! This year’s big names in terms of celeb types include Molly Ringwald and Adrienne Barbeau. But the real stars are all the wonderful writers.

There will be all kinds of book signings so bring your credit card!

Check out the schedule and make a day of it!
