World of adventure for the bookshelf

The summer season offers some remarkable opportunities for face-to-face encounters with authors who are celebrated not merely for their celebrity but for the quality of their written work. To be sure, Kendall Jenner will be touting “Rebels: City of Indra: The Story of Lex and Livia” (Gallery Books), which she co-wrote with her sister, Kylie, when they weren’t filming “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” But the roster of touring authors for the summer of 2014 is full of authentic working writers, too. (The Jenner event, by the way, will take place at 7 p.m. June 12, at Barnes & Noble in The Grove at Farmers Market, 189 The Grove Drive, Los Angeles.)
