In April, we’re reading A Perfect Universe by Scott O’Connor, a collection of short stories about people who live… well, right here.
Aaand, there’s a very good chance Mr. O’Connor is going to stop in to say “Hi”.
Siel Ju (Cake Time) moderates this book club, which reads LA writers & LA novels, sometimes from LA presses. The book is included with the price of your ticket, which you can get right here.
