Los Angeles Times Festival of Books

The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books is this weekend at UCLA April 26-27. This is a wonderful event and I encourage all my students to go at least one day if possible. (And I'll give extra credit to any student bearing proof of attendance.) The Festival is free. There are several stages which have readings by authors, and music and poetry. Check out the link here .

Mr.Doyle in the Glendale News Press

Mr.Doyle recently presented a speech for the city-sponsored "Week of Remembrance" held at the Glendale Public Library on April 21. He spoke about the Irish Potato Famine in context with other important examples of man's inhumanity to man.
