Editor Susan LaTempa presents a reading from Paperback L.A. Book 2: A Casual Anthology: Studios, Salesmen, Shrines, Surfspots, a wide-ranging collection of L.A.-centric photographs and short pieces by both modern local writers and such past legends as Ray Bradbury and the influential African-American crime-fiction author Chester Himes. The generally amiable Bradbury delves into murder, and Himes uncovers racism at a seemingly innocuous lunch meeting at a downtown hotel. Naomi Hirahara evokes ghost towns, Jim Gavin plumbs the depths of plumbing, Helen Evans Brown weighs in on avocados, and former L.A. Weekly writer Wendy Gilmartin turns her focus on "fugly" architecture.
