Los Angeles remains well-known as a constantly amazing haven for independent bookstores, and now the independent booksellers and publishers that fill those bookstores have an event that joins all literary forces. Hosted by the Los Angeles Review of Books, LitLit: The Little Literary Fair gathers booksellers and publishers in one place so that the literary landscape of Los Angeles unveils itself like never before.
You’ll also see authors and art book makers in conversation with local publishers such as Tosh Berman, Angel City Press, LARB/USC Publishing Workshop, Not A Cult, Red Hen Press, Tia Chucha, X Artists’ Books, and many, many others.
And of course all of this happens at Arts District mega-gallery Hauser & Wirth, whose in-house publishing wing co-presents the event, so while you’re there, don’t miss the landmark David Hammons exhibition on view in two galleries and both courtyards.
Hauser & Wirth, 901-909 E. 3rd St., downtown; Sat.-Sun., July 20-21, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.; free. (213) 943-1620, hauserwirth.com/events/25139-litlit-little-literary-fair; free.
