As the Library Foundation celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, we are throwing the largest Library party of the year to celebrate all things literary. Join us for the 6th Annual Book Drop Bash, an after-hours soiree following the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books when we throw out all of the library rules and raise our voices well above a whisper. On Saturday, April 22, Members of the Library Foundation of Los Angeles will gather with authors from the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books at the historic Central Library after dark for this exclusive event.
Bring a book and take a book–or books–with our legendary book swap, dance to a DJ set sponsored by KCRW, enjoy local brews from Angel City Brewery, a tequila tasting by Dolce Vida, Blue Bottle coffee, tasty snacks, photo booth fun, and other treats. Stay tuned for the slate of authors attending the Festival this year. Past participants have included T.C. Boyle (pictured below), LeVar Burton, Janet Fitch, Jonathan Gold, Attica Locke, Susan Orlean, Luis J. Rodriguez, Kenneth Turan, David Ulin, and many more Library Foundation supporters.
If you would like to attend and are not a Member, you can purchase a ticket to the event, which will include a one-year Membership to the Library Foundation. Learn more about tickets and make your reservation for the Bash. The special evening kicks-off with a VIP Preview from 7-8 pm offering Contributor Members and higher first access to the Book Swap, heavy hors d’oeuvres, a Champagne toast, and an exclusive giveaway. The official party opens at 8 pm to all Members.
Thanks to all of our sponsors for making this such a truly special event, including Grand Park, Lyft, and Kind Bars. Learn more about the 6th Annual Book Drop Bash.
