One of the biggest literary gatherings in Los Angeles, the fifth annual L.A. Lit Crawl spans the entirety of hip NoHo Arts District's nearly 40 theaters, galleries, restaurants, bars and tattoo shops and attracts some 3,5000 visitors. Divided into three, 45-minute rounds, the daylong schedule features readings by more than 200 local authors, poets and artists from the Los Angeles Review of Books, Santa Monica Review, Red Hen Press, Los Angeles Poet Society, Tia Chucha's Centro Cultural & Bookstore, Sisters in Crime and other literary presses and organizations, in addition to panels, workshops and the Los Angeles County Library's Bookmobile. All events are walkable and free, with the exception of the closing party at the Eclectic, sponsored by Amazon Studios.
