Pencil This In: Good LA Weekend, Meg Wolitzer at Vroman's, Michael Steele Solo Show at Gallery1988
Author Meg Wolitzer reads from her latest book The Uncoupling tonight at Vroman’s at 7 pm. It’s an examination of feminine desire and power: A new drama teacher in a suburban high school puts on a production of Lysistrata (the Aristophanes play in which the women of Greece go on a sex strike against men until a war ends), and the women and girls find that their own feelings toward the men in their lives have changed drastically, and perhaps irrevocably, overnight.
GOOD Magazine celebrates the publication of its Los Angeles issue and a new GOOD LA local community all weekend long. There’s a weekend planned of urban hiking adventures, DIY workshops, hack-a-thons, civic engagements, artist interventions, resource sharing, literary readings, film screenings, book club meetings, neighborhood walks and locally-made goods, at the new creative space in Atwater Village: Atwater Crossing. Tonight’s program matches eight designers with eight urban problems. They’ll present solutions in front of a live audience, followed by a Q&A and cocktail hour. 7-10 pm. The event is full, but a limited number of tickets will be available at the door.
