Save Village Books

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

If you support independent anything, listen up: Village Books in Pacific Palisades is on the verge of closing. Thank you big box chains, for screwing with the independents again.

How to help right away: Shop at Village Books this weekend for the 15% off sale. You know you've got holiday shopping to do and why not do it at Village Books?

How to help after this weekend: If you are an author, have a signing there. If you are a publicist, get your author to have a signing there. If you read books of any kind, make a conscious effort to shop there. If you like meeting writers, attend a reading there. Then browse among the stacks, enjoy the mellow vibe, and purchase something else there.

If you don't, who will: With so many independent stores closing in Los Angeles, it's easy to see another plea like this and assume someone else will get out there and do the shopping for you. Guess what? They're thinking you'll do it.

So you'll do it, right? We'll see you there.
