We’ve already posted about Libros Schmibros’ residency at the Hammer Museum on our Facebook, but I had to devote a little digital ink to the shop because I saw it today and it is so glorious! (We’re not just saying that because one of our organizers is a volunteer.)
The Hammer pop-up is more than just a well-curated book selection, it’s events like a discussion with L.A.-area cartographers and a discussion with House of Leaves’ Mark Danielewski about Thomas Pynchon’s L.A. (Pynchon was a South Bayer!). The full Libros schedule is available here. The Hammer Museum, which houses Libros until October 9, is FREE and incredible. With delicious Persian and ice-cream-sandwich-based eating opportunities nearby, you should be seriously grilling yourself as to why you’re not there already.

Oh, by the way…
keep an eye out for an interview with local zinemakers, Eyeball Burp! L.A. Zine Fest is going to ask all the tough questions; no secrets are safe.
