Based on San Francisco’s wildly successful Litquake, Lit Crawl L.A. is a literary take on the bar crawl. Now in its second year, the NoHo Arts District event consists of three “rounds” of literary events at 7, 8 and 9 p.m. (plus an after-party at 10 p.m. on the upper floor of the Federal Bar), all free and walking distance from the North Hollywood Metro station. Start the night with an unmistakably Hollywood crowd of writers — Annabelle Gurwitch, Richard Kramer (My So-Called Life), Peter Mehlman (Seinfeld) and Stephen Tobolowsky (Groundhog Day) — at Po§ch. Stay for the whole round (until 7:45) or continue your crawl for Poesia Para la Gente at the Metro station, a mini–Literary Death Match with Lara Marie Schoenhals (White Girl Problems) at XMA, a “poetry three-way” at Romantix Adult Boutique, or reimaginings of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and A Ghost Story at the Antaeus Company Library (it’s almost Halloween!). Grab a drink between rounds and then catch Red Hen Press’ comedic poets at Tamashii Ramen, or magic literature plus Magic Castle magicians at Bow and Truss. For round three, check out stories paired with specially created dishes at the Art Institute Culinary School. Dine and dash so that you can make it to Spinder, a literary version of dating app Tinder, at Big Wangs. If these events aren’t setting your mind on fire, don’t worry — the whole point of the Lit Crawl is to hop from venue to venue (of which there are 30!), sampling a uniquely L.A. lineup of bookish events. Various North Hollywood venues, see lit​crawl.org/la/schedule for schedule; Wed., Oct. 22, 7 p.m. litcrawl.org/la. —Sascha Bos
