Stories Books in Echo Park is throwing a party at 8 pm tonight for Mark Blake’s book The Wit & Wisdom of Keith Richards — compiled quotes from the Rolling Stones guitarist. They’ll supply the DJs, souvenirs, some sloppy covers and some dramatic readings. (We're actually really surprised that Blake was able to translate Richards' um,
mumbling distinct speaking style for these snippets.)
