ESL 224: A Festival of Books



Download


People joke that no one in Los Angeles reads; everyone watches TV, rents videos, or goes to the movies. The most popular reading material is comic books, movie magazines, and TV guides. City libraries have only 10 percent of the traffic that car washes have. But how do you explain this? An annual book festival in west Los Angeles is "sold out" year after year. People wait half an hour for a parking space to become available.

This outdoor festival, sponsored by a newspaper, occurs every April for one weekend. This year's attendance was estimated at 70,000 on Saturday and 75,000 on Sunday. The festival featured 280 exhibitors. There were about 90 talks given by authors, with an audience question-and-answer period following each talk. Autograph seekers sought out more than 150 authors. A food court sold all kinds of popular and ethnic foods, from American hamburgers to Hawaiian shave ice drinks. Except for a $7 parking fee, the festival was free. Even so, some people avoided the food court prices by sneaking in their own sandwiches and drinks.

People came from all over California. One couple drove down from San Francisco. "This is our sixth year here now. We love it," said the husband. "It's just fantastic to be in the great outdoors, to be among so many books and authors, and to get some very good deals, too."

The idea for the festival occurred years ago, but nobody knew if it would succeed. Although book festivals were already popular in other US cities, would Los Angeles residents embrace one? "Angelenos are very unpredictable,"said one of the festival founders.

Hội sách

Người ta đùa rằng không ai ở Los Angeles đọc sách; mọi người xem TV, mướn video, hay đi xem phim. Loại sách phổ biến nhất là truyện tranh, tạp chí phim ảnh, và chương trình TV. Thư viện thành phố chỉ có 10 phần trăm viếng thăm so với rửa xe. Nhưng làm sao bạn có thể giải thích điều này? Hội sách hàng năm ở Tây Los Angeles luôn "bán hết sạch" mỗi năm. Mọi người chờ nửa tiếng để kiếm chổ đậu xe.

Hội sách ngoài trời, tài trợ bởi một tờ báo, xảy ra mỗi tháng Tư vào một cuối tuần. Năm nay số người dự kiến tham gia là 70,000 vào thứ Bảy và 75,000 vào Chủ nhật. Hội sách có 280 gian hàng triển lãm. Có khoảng 90 buổi nói chuyện do tác giả, tiếp theo là hỏi đáp với thính giả sau mỗi buổi nói chuyện. Người săn lùng chữ ký có thể gặp hơn 150 tác giả. Quầy thực phẩm bán đủ loại thực phẩm dân tộc thông dụng, từ bánh mì thịt băm Mỹ đến thức uống đá bào Hawai. Ngoại trừ $7 phí đậu xe, hội sách miễn phí. Ngay cả như vậy, vài người cũng tránh mua thức ăn bằng cách lén đem bánh mì kẹp thịt và thức uống của mình.

Mọi người đến từ khắp nơi California. Một cặp vợ chồng lái xe xuống từ San Francisco. "Đây là năm thứ sáu chúng tôi đến đây. Chúng tôi yêu hội sách," người chồng nói. "Thật là tuyệt với được ở ngoài trời, giữa cơ man nào là sách, và tác giả, và mua được nhiều sách giá tốt,".

Ý tưởng hội sách xảy ra nhiều năm trước, nhưng không ai biết nó có thành công không. Dù hội sách rất phổ biến ở những thành phố khác của Mỹ, cư dân Los Angeles có ôm đồm tổ chức một lần?" "Người dân Angeles rất khó dự đoán," một nhà sáng lập hội sách nói.

Người ta nói đùa rằng ở Los Angeles không ai đọc sách cả; mọi người xem ti-vi, mướn băng vi-đê-ô, hoặc đi xem phim. Loại tài liệu được đọc phổ biến nhất là truyện tranh, tạp chí điện ảnh, và cẩm nang truyền hình. Các thư viện của thành phố chỉ có được 10% số lượng xe cộ ra vào so với một nơi rửa xe. Thế nhưng làm sao bạn có thể giải thích được điều này? Một hội sách thường niên ở phía tây Los Angeles thường "hết hàng" năm này sang năm khác. Mọi người chờ nửa tiếng đồng hồ để có được một chỗ đậu xe.

Lễ hội ngoài trời, được một tờ báo bảo trợ, diễn ra vào dịp cuối tuần mỗi tháng Tư hàng năm. Số người tham dự năm nay ước chừng từ 70.000 người vào Thứ bảy và 75.000 người vào Chủ nhật. Lễ hội có 280 nhà triển lãm. Có khoảng 90 cuộc toạ đàm được thực hiện bởi các tác giả, với phần chất vấn-và-giải đáp của khán thính giả tuỳ theo từng cuộc toạ đàm. Những người săn tìm chữ ký tìm kiếm ra được hơn 150 tác giả. Một khu ẩm thực bán tất cả món ăn phổ biến và có truyền thống văn hoá, từ bánh mì xăng-uých hăm-bơ-gơ của Mỹ đến nước xi-rô đá bào của người Ha-wai. Ngoại trừ 7 đô-la tiền gởi xe, lễ hội được miễn phí. Tuy thế, một số người tránh xa giá cả thức ăn tại khu ẩm thực bằng cách lén dùng bánh mì xăng-uých và nước uống của mình.

Mọi người đến từ khắp nơi California. Từ Sanfrancisco một đôi vợ chồng lái xe chạy xuống. "Đây là năm thứ sáu chúng tôi có mặt ở đây. Chúng tôi rất thích Hội sách," người chồng cho biết. "Thật là tuyệt vời khi được tham gia các hoạt động ngoài trời, được bao quanh bởi sách cùng các tác giả và lại có được một số giao dịch thành công."

Ý tưởng về hội sách được nảy ra nhiều năm trước đây, nhưng không một ai chắc chắn nó sẽ thành công hay không. Cho dù hội sách đã phổ biến trong các thành phố khác của Hoa Kỳ, liệu cư dân Los Angeles sẽ nắm lấy thời cơ đó? "Dân Los Angeles khó mà đoán cho trúng lắm," một trong những sáng lập viên cho biết.

ESL đăng ký: Bạn không cần phải đăng ký gì cả. Chỉ việc nhẩy vào bài ESL 1 học và làm bài tập. Tiếp tục những bài kế tiếp càng nhanh càng tốt. Mình sẽ 888 và thỉnh thoảng cùng nhau nhắc nhở cho vui hén. Chứ thật ra việc học là việc của tự bản thân mình. Mình giỏi thì mình được nhờ hén.
