Literary Events in Los Angeles for the week of October 15, 2018

Issue 111

I am very excited to announce that, as of this week, LitWeekLA is done with Amazon. From now on, all the links in the LitWeekLA website and newsletter will take you to IndieBound.org and any money you spend will support their network of independent bookstores. A big thanks to Cheryl Ryan at Diesel Bookstore in Santa Monica for making the suggestion. It feels really good to be supporting indies over Amazon.

What’s more, for every book you buy, a few cents will come back to me to help cover the modest, but very real, costs of hosting and coding.

And on that note, a quick reminder that for just 25 cents a week you can help me keep the LitWeekLA running and support the literary community in Los Angeles as a whole. Click the link below to go to my Patreon page where you can subscribe. Every dollar counts.
Thanks!
