A three-day focus on the literary merits of the City of Angels.
Some people say that Los Angeles lacks literary merit. Those people would be wrong, as is ably demonstrated by the sheer volume of great writers that have made LA their home, among them Raymond Chandler, Charles Bukoswki, Joan Didion, and Thomas Pynchon. To celebrate our city’s literary luminaries, the LA Public Library’s Central Branch offers three days of free events from top writers mulling over Los Angeles’ particular bookish climate. Included among the free talks are a discussion with Walter Mosley about Noir and Crime, a bus tour of Chandler’s LA, and panel discussions with writers including Lisa See, Terry Wolverton, Aimee Bender, and Lynell George.
