The month of April is an exciting one for the Los Angeles literary community. We have the LA Festival of Books, the Pasadena Festival of Women Authors, and Independent Bookstore Day. All the book lovers come out to play. It’s an awesome month because of you.
And so it seems the perfect time to ask for your support. The LitWeekLA update is free and always will be, but it does take time and money to compile it week after week.
Please consider becoming a patron of LitWeekLA. By giving just $1 a month (that’s just 25 cents an issue) you can support writers, readers and independent book stores across Los Angeles. Visit https://www.patreon.com/litweekla to sign up today. And thank you!
