Before you read this story...
Dear reader, we're asking for your help to keep local reporting available for all. Your financial support keeps stories like this one free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

There's so much to do and see this weekend, we don't know where to start. Well, actually we do. This LAist is going to spending lots of quality time at Skylight Books in Los Feliz as they have some eclectic readings and panels we (and you) don't want to miss.

Tonight, that party monster, Wow Report contributor and eternal club kid, James St James, explains it all for you, along with Jennifer Blowdryer, Clint Catalyst, Leonora Claire and Alvin Orloff to sign their latest book, Good Advice for Young Trendy People from Manic D Press.

It's sure to be an eyeful and educational good time.
