Veronica Roth at the LA TIMES Festival of Books 2014

LA Times brings us a recap of DIVERGENT author Veronica Roth at the LA Times Bookfest this month, plus we've included some photos of Veronica signing st the event and video of the talk:

In between some rants and caveman talk, "Divergent" trilogy author Veronica Roth explained Sunday how she came up with the female protagonist of her dystopian coming-of-age novel.

Roth, 25, spoke at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books with Leigh Bardugo, whose books include "Shadow and Bone" and "Siege and Storm." Bardugo set the stage by explaining why young adult novels such as "Divergent" are such hits.

"That feeling never goes away of finding somewhere to belong," she said.

Borrowing from the five groups of people in Roth's books, here's a look at what Roth shared about her process, characters and message to young adult readers. 

Amity (the peaceful): Four, the male partner-in-crime for Tris, was purposely well-balanced with the heroine.

"I didn't want one person's strength to require the sacrifice of the other," Roth said. "I think there can be two strong people but they have to be complicated people. I think it's important to show he's a human being, not just man candy."

"She Definitely Understands What a F***ing Weirdo I Am" Theo James Talks FOUR, Shailene Woodley & More

From DAZED DIGITAL: "Well she was walking down the street and – er, nah, I’m kidding," jokes Theo James about how he first met Divergent heroine (and herbalist) Shailene Woodley. James is one of those zero-to-hero "hot young Hollywood up-and-comers" with his mug plastered over bus and billboard for the dystopian action film.

He's known for his brief stint on Downton Abbey and appearing in Ben Palmer's The Inbetweeners Movie, but nothing has prepared him for this. "For other stuff I’ve done, (getting recognized) is kind of the normal thing that happens," James says. "In terms of Divergent I don’t think it’s started yet. We'll see when I get in tomorrow – maybe I’ll be greeted by a bunch of sexy fans!" He's a riot over the phone, cracking jokes like a whip. And he's perhaps downplaying the shower of attention he's about to experience, especially after a certain on-screen smooch with Shailene Woodley. Soon he'll experience the Notting Hill effect, with horny tweens banging down his door for a glimpse of the tramp stamp he sports in the film. But first, Theo James, rising star in all stratospheres, talks about how he went in for the big one with costar Shailene…
