Slake Magazine – a Los Angeles quarterly magazine dedicated to breathing fresh life into the Los Angeles literary scene, is going to be infusing Larchmont with the spoken word this Thursday, Dec 15th at 7-9 pm at Chevalier’s Books. Promising the kind of “polished essay, memoir, fiction, poetry and profile writing that is rapidly disappearing in an age of instant takes and unfiltered opinion” this event follows other Slake readings across LA that have become popular salons of thinkers, writers and artists coming together. It should be a scene you won’t want to miss.
On the docket for Thursday’s readings: Luke Davies reading from his epic poem Interferon Psalms, Sam Slovick narrating his time at Occupy LA, Melissa Chadburn sharing her memoir of a Westwood you’ll never know, Natasha Vargas-Cooper on labor battles, and Brendan Schallert reading from his short story set in the valley in the 1970s (pool party!)
A great opp to see and be seen, hear and be heard, read and be read to – right here on Larchmont.Chevalier’s Books 126 N Larchmont Bl Tel: 323 4651334 RSVP via Email
