Our regular book critic and literary contributor David Kipen joins us once in a full moon for his roundup of bibliocentric events: Reading by Moonlight.
He's the founder of the lending library, Libros Schmibros, in Boyle Heights, which celebrates its fourth birthday Aug. 10.
This lunar cycle Kipen recommends:
- Midnight release party for Haruki Murakami's new novel, "Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage," at Skylight Books in Los Feliz
- Leonard Maltin's 2014 Movie Guide, releases September 3
- August 26 centennial birthday for Argentine writer Julio Cortázar
Hear David Kipen read Cortázar's extremely short one-page story, "A Continuity of Parks" from the collection, "Blow Up and Other Stories":
