Members and Authors Bash It Up

Apr 20, 2017

The Library Foundation’s biggest Members-only party of the year is around the corner–this Saturday, April 22, the Book Drop Bash will bring together authors from the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books with our Members for an after-hours party at the historic Central Library.

Some of the participating authors and honorary hosts of this special event include: Steph Cha, Erwin Chemerinsky, Kim Dower, Geoff Dyer, David Francis, Adam Hochschild, Attica Locke, Tom Lutz, Lisa Napoli, Viet Thanh Nguyen, Nina Revoyr, Mary Roach, Mona Simpson, Rebecca Solnit, Louise Steinman, David L. Ulin, and Charles Yu. Library Foundation Members will get the chance to mingle with the authors, swap books, and enjoy literary libations.

This special evening is just one of the great benefits of Membership. Members also get advanced electronic notice of ALOUD programs, which has featured many of the authors who will be attending the Bash. As we get ready to bash it up, enjoy a few videos from the ALOUD archives with some of the Bash’s honorary hosts. Learn more about becoming a Member to receive these benefits and more, all while supporting the Los Angeles Public Library!



Check out all of the ALOUD Media Archives, including these podcasts with other Bash participants: Mary Roach, Mona Simpson, Rebecca Solnit, and Louise Steinman and David L. Ulin.
