Grand Park, 200 N. Grand Ave.

Hungry for literature? Read your heart out at the Downtown BookFest in Grand Park. The all-day event will host independent author readings, book-making demonstrations and performances. If you’re looking to discover new books, The Last Bookstore in collaboration with Writ Large will be hosting a pop-up bookstore in the park, which will feature select independent and used books. If you go but don’t necessarily want to purchase a book, you also have the option of curling up on the grass with a book borrowed from one of the four miniature lending libraries that will be set up. Finally, for those who have more than a figurative hunger for something, never fear, there will be food trucks on site to satisfy empty stomachs.



Saturday, starting at 7:30 p.m.

Historical Central Library

Night at the Museum? Try night at the library. The Historic Central Library dims the lights for the second installment of its late-night talk show series This is Your Library.

The night will feature musician Exene Cervenka, novelist and veteran Los Angeles Times writer Hector Tobar, City Librarian of the Los Angeles Public Library John Szabo and director-writer-producer Mike White, in addition to psych rockers Feeding People.
