$35 Young Literati / FREE for participating festival authors
The Young Literati celebrate the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books and the literary life of Los Angeles at their second annual Book Drop BASH! That's right, once again, the Young Literati and their literary compadres will be throwing the "go-to" after-party for one of the largest book events of its kind exclusively for participating festival authors and members of the Young Literati. Enjoy cocktails, dessert, and music while hanging with some of your favorite authors after-hours at Downtown's historic Central Library.
And that's not all! For those feeling loaded down with books and in need of a personal library purge, the evening will also feature our legendary book swap. Leftover books at the end of the evening will be donated to our award-winning Library Store where they’ll be sold to benefit the Los Angeles Public Library.
