Just in time for summer reading, the Los Angeles Times Book Club has chosen "The Library Book" as our first community read. We’ll host a June 25 forum with bestselling author Susan Orlean at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in Barnsdall Art Park in Los Angeles.
Join us as we discuss Orlean's bestseller about the mysterious 1986 fire that devastated Los Angeles' landmark Central Library. Get ticket information here.
Building on the success of America's largest literary event, the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, we started a community book club to keep the storytelling and conversation going year-round.
The Los Angeles Times Book Club will give readers the opportunity to see, hear and interact with world-class authors, celebrities, chefs and newsmakers as they discuss their books and tell their stories.
What to expect:
Every month we'll share a book club selection, publish stories exploring the topic, and invite you to read along. Then we'll host a community book club evening with the featured author and invite you to join that, too. The focus will be on books and authors relevant to Southern California and the West – books that illuminate and explain our unique landscape, culture, identity and history.
