It’s been an awesome month for lit-lovers in Los Angeles. I’d like to thank my two new Patreon supporters and make one final ask for my yearly fundraising effort.
My goal was to reach support at the level of $15 a month (enough to cover hosting and newsletter expenses). Please consider signing up today. Help LitWeekLA connect authors with their readers, support independent books stores and keep the heart of literary Los Angeles beating.

Never Sit If You Can Dance: Lessons from My Mother
Buy it on IndieBound.org
This Mother’s Day, Giese’s book invites us to remember the lessons we learned from our mothers. With lessons ranging from “flowers never go out of style’ to ‘don’t be drab’ and ‘we all need someone waiting for us in the parking lot’” Never Sit If You Can Dance is a light-filled and universal tribute to love that will ring true with mothers, daughters, and their families in a time when we all need some old-fashioned civility in our lives.
