TONIGHT -- Friday -- you might want to check this event out at the Echo Park Time Travel Mart.
It's an event celebrating L.A.'s literary landscape and the publication of a map that will help guide you through it. It traverses some of the territory we've covered over the course of the semester -- voices and boosters, etc. . . . . It might make for a good event to cover for one of your postings.

It's $12 admission and that includes a copy of the map.
