Treat your friends, family, and imagination this Saturday at Grand Park’s 3rd annual Downtown Bookfest featuring Artizen Lab!

Skim through an eclectic mix of fun family activities, pop-up bookshops, and lit readings from noon until 5 p.m. In addition to supporting the largest coalition of Los Angeles-based presses and publishers, you can choose from books, graphic novels, and bilingual literary gems. The plot thickens… Show your valid TAP card at the Grand Park + Writ Large Pop Up Bookshop and save 10% on your book purchases.

You can also interact with The Music Center’s Artizen Lab, where inspiring ideas to community challenges come to life through art experiences. At the main stage you can catch poetry and lit readings from L.A.-based authors, including L.A.’s new poet laureate, Luis J. Rodriguez. To see a schedule of events, check out the Downtown Bookfest event page.

Join other book worms and literary lovers at this free community event! As always, we recommend taking the Metro Red/Purple Line or bus lines to Civic Center/Grand Park Station to avoid the hassles of traffic and parking. After the festival, safely flip through your new books on the way home. For more routes and connections, use the Trip Planner.
