The Madeleine Brand Show for August 31, 2011

Libros Schmibros pop-up store at the Hammer and readings around town

Mercer 20706

Libros Schmibros

A version of the Boyle Heights book shop Libros Schmibros (seen here) has popped up at the Hammer Museum in Westwood.

Book critic David Kipen is a regular guest on the show and the founder of bookstore/lending library Libros Schmibros in Boyle Heights. But for the next few weeks he's taking the store on the road - across town to the Hammer Museum in Westwood. In addition to the UCLA-adjacent pop up shop, Kipen will be hosting a number of literary events, including a poetry reading Tuesday featuring Boyle Heights writers Kristy Lovich, Luis Rodriguez, and Abel Salas.
