Next Sunday, August 26th, the Culinary Historians of Southern California will be hosting a used book sale showcasing vintage finds from all over L.A. Bookworms can relish in the collection of worn pages, old menus, and culinary ephemera after perusing the Hollywood Farmers Market, which is where the event will take place.

Entrance is free and open to the public. Proceeds from cookbook sales will go towards continuing to build the Los Angeles Public Library’s culinary collections, one of the most extensive in the country with over 18,000 cookbooks. The event will go from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m.. You can find more details on their site.
