Nobody Reads in LA
Something like a book club (but less rigid), meeting in site-specific locations in downtown and North East Los Angeles, with titles selected to provoke and fascinate while coinciding with such Esotouric bus adventures as Raymond Chandler's Los Angeles ("The Little Sister"), James M. Cain's Los Angeles ("Mildred Pierce"), Reyner Banham Loves Los Angeles ("The Architecture of Four Ecologies") and Charles Bukowski's Los Angeles ("Post Office"). The first meeting is this Wednesday night at Lost Souls, when we will talk about John Fante's "Ask the Dust," screen Kent Mackenzie's scarce 1958 documentary "Bunker Hill" and then take a brief walking tour of the lost downtown of Fante's work, a preview of Saturday's debut John Fante's Dreams of Bunker Hill tour. All are welcome, and "Ask the Dust" is short enough that you can read it by then.
