Smokler All Over
LAist chatted with Kevin Smokler a few weeks ago about his new book, Bookmark Now, and now you've got the chance to do so as well. If you didn't catch him last night at Skylight Books, you can hang with him and Lynn Isenberg and maybe some of us -isters (ed. note -- mainly me) tonight at Book Soup. The word nerd party starts at 7 PM.
Kevin will also be hanging with Carolyn Kellogg on her Pinky's Paperhaus podcast this week and will participate in the Southland Writer's Toolbox Series on Wednesday with Elegant Variation's own Mark Sarvas.
