"Lit Crawl" literature fair visits Los Angeles, other cities


I got a press release concerning a “Lit Crawl LosAngeles” to be held in North Hollywood.  

The event will include many LGBTQ books according to what I am told.

The group sets up book and literature fairs in various cities.  The word “crawl” comes from the idea of a “pub crawl” (like in the UK movie “World’s End”).  I wonder if the event has occurred in Minneapolis (in the Uptown area near the Lagoon Theater is the obvious place). 

The press release from PlatformMedia Group(site requires Adobe flash) reads:

We’re are aware how busy the book season is around this time of year so we’d hope to get this on your radar ASAP.  

“We’re pleased to announce this year's Lit Crawl® L.A. on Wednesday, October 25, 2017. For the FIFTH consecutive year, thousands of literary arts lovers from throughout Southern California are expected to converge in the North Hollywood Arts District for one night of “literary mayhem.” 

“As you might recall, Lit Crawl is a choose-your-own literary adventure experience featuring dozens of restaurants, theaters, galleries, bars, and other unique venues hosting literary events over the course of three rounds. From readings to performances, the 5th annual Lit Crawl L.A. will be an unforgettable—and entirely walkable— experience. 

“I can’t guarantee this but I think that besides the Festival of Books, the Lit Crawl is one of the four or five biggest annual literary events in LA.

“We hope you have an opportunity to feature it and we’ve attached our press release and the full schedule for your reference. 

“We’d also be happy to coordinate any interviews with the founders or participants. If you need anything else, please don’t hesitate to contact me.”


I was last in LA in 2012 (including West Hollywood, including the Abbey).
