Saturday in L.A. Is for Poets: Two Special Events

Melinda Palacio

If you're anywhere near Los Angeles on Saturday, November 18, there are two events you won't want to miss. First, at noon, Vroman's Bookstore in Pasadena celebrates its Author Walk of Fame with a dedication ceremony honoring Luis J. Rodriguez. Handprints, a signature, reception, and a conversation with Luis and Lynell George are part of the festivities to honor the literary career of Los Angeles Poet Laureate Emeritus, Luis J. Rodriguez. Saturday, November 18, 2017- 12:00 pm, Vroman's 695 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91101. 

Later in the evening, at 8pm, not too far from Pasadena, at Highland Park's Avenue 50 Studio, enjoy the book launch party for Daniel Olivas's poetry book, Crossing the Border. You might recall reading about this long-awaited poetry book last August. Finally, you can get your copies signed by La Bloga's Daniel Olivas. Read the previously published La Bloga review here. Saturday, November 18 from 8-10 pm at Avenue 50 Studio, 131 N Avenue 50, Los Angeles, CA 90042.
