LIT CRAWL LA: NOHO 2014 WAS A LITERARY SMORGASBORD!
The international Lit Crawl phenomenon returned to L.A. with the 2nd Annual Lit Crawl L.A.: NoHo on Wednesday, October 22, 2014 in the North Hollywood Arts District! Restaurants, bars, galleries, theaters and other hip NoHo venues hosted an evening of innovative presentations with the best of L.A.’s literary scene sampling from throughout Los Angeles County. The 2nd annual Lit Crawl L.A.: NoHo is greater L.A.’s grassroots literary event and this year’s Crawl was another magical, vibrant night for all!
Over 30 presenters from readings series to local presses hosted events at 30 locations across the NoHo Arts District! Held in three 45-minute rounds, this progressive literary night was a chance to dine, explore, and stroll while enjoying readings, performances and even a literary carnival! More than 170 writers appeared at events and the Los County Library’s Bookmobile and the Los Angeles Public Library’s Library Store on Wheels joined us out on the streets for the literary fun! Many guests took the LA Metro to the Crawl, walking and riding their bikes throughout the evening.
The lit crawl concept was birthed as the closing night of San Francisco’s annual Litquake festival in 2006, which is tremendously popular and to this day attracts thousands of guests, annually. San Francisco’s Litquake literary festival runs every October with other annual Lit Crawls in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Seattle, Iowa City, Austin, London, and Miami. In 2013, Lit Crawl L.A.: NoHo was founded as a project of the Litquake Foundation and of the Pasadena Arts Council’s Emerge Program.
