In conjunction with the Festival of Books, downtown's Central Library hosts an evening celebrating the written word.
Wash off the sunscreen and don your evening attire, as the Central Library hosts their second annual Book Drop Bash. Enjoy cocktails and dessert while mixing with authors appearing throughout the festival. Attendees are also invited to bring used books -- and even take a few home from the book swap tables. All in all, it's a fairly swank affair that infuses the L.A. literary scene with a nightclub sheen -- all in the halls of the historic central library.
Check the library's website for more information and to purchase tickets.
