Join the Los Angeles Review of Books as we celebrate ten years with a fun and festive evening featuring appearances and toasts by Jody Armour, Margaret Atwood, Reza Aslan, Victoria Chang, Dean Rader, Lynne Thompson, and more; giveaways of everything from tickets to our February 19 Lifetime Achievement Award Ceremony honoring Sandra Cisneros, Linda Hogan, & Ishmael Reed and annual LARB Book Club memberships to an autographed vintage typewriter from Tom Hanks’s special collection; readings from Steph Cha, Sarah Chihaya, and Kaya Genç, and the debut of our special 10th Anniversary Anthology edition of the LARB Quarterly Journal, featuring some of decade’s best writing!

The virtual celebration will take place on Zoom and serve as both the culmination of our year-long anniversary campaign and the official launch party for the QJ issue. Admission to the event is free, though we gratefully welcome donations and sponsorships in support of LARB’s continued work as a 501(c)(3) reader-supported nonprofit. All donations to this event will be doubled by the generosity of a tenth anniversary matching grant sponsor. Help secure LARB’s future—and be entered in for fun giveaways—at the same time!
