Hello Writers and Friends!
This week the NoHo Arts District welcomes thousands of literary lovers to Lankershim Blvd where all the magic will unfold for the 2nd ANNUAL Lit Crawl LA: NoHo!
The show is broken up into 3 Rounds...each round holding over a dozen events to choose from or hop around on your trek through the Crawl!
The complete schedule of events can be found here:http://litcrawl.org/la/schedule/
There are a variety of shows that measure literature through means of horror, erotica, humor, spoken word and mind tricks...and so much more! Definitely take a look at the schedule and mark your favorites for each round!
The Los Angeles Poet Society is so proud to be a part of the show for the 2nd year in a row as a Community Sponsor. We are also hosting our own event, A Night with a NoHo Beat! This show features Julio the Conga Poet Rodriguez laying down the conga rhythms as the movers and shakers of the "Valley" literary scene throw their own spoken word into the mix! Celebrating: Jason Brain, Wyatt Underwood, Maja Trochimczyk! PLUS guest Flutist, Juan Cardenas!
Enter a 1957 Beatnik literary parlour fusing live jazz and spoken word.
