Hot Dish Brunch Party
Attracting a crowd for a literary event can be tough, but Hot Dish founders Summer Block Kumar and J. Ryan Stradal have found a way to make readings more appetizing: Provide homemade brunch and mimosas. Hot Dish is a curated food event (past events have been themed around desserts and school lunches) held quarterly, with a rotating cast of culinary and literary contributors. This Sunday's Hot Dish Brunch Party, a fundraiser for 826LA's educational programs, features writer-comedian Sara Benincasa, comic-book writer Erin Hickey, novelist Cari Lynn and short-story writers Tommy Moore, Zoe Ruiz and Eric Stolze. Novelist Kate Maruyama will bake scones, Los Angeles editor Elina Shatkin will put her Scooby-Doo pancake maker to good use and poet Kima Jones will bring the bacon (turkey bacon, that is), while Hickey will cater to the vegan crowd. Bring a book to trade with the Book Bound Mobile Library so you can digest some new reading material post-feast. 826LA, 1714 W. Sunset Blvd., Echo Park; Sun., March 16, 11:30 a.m.; $5. (213) 413-3388, 826la.org.
Sun., March 16, 11:30 a.m., 2014 (Expired: 03/16/14)
