If you’re looking for a fun, book-filled weekend (and seriously, who isn’t?), then make sure to add the Leimert Park Village Book Fair to your calendar. On Saturday, August 24th from 10am to 5pm, the event voted “one of LA’s 5 best annual book festivals” will be held at Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza. With multiple authors and book events happening throughout the day, the certain highlight will be the presentation and live cooking demonstrations provided by Laila Ali, the successful boxer and cookbook author, whom also happens to be the daughter of Muhammad Ali.
Over 40 additional authors will be participating, along with a star-studded panel of presenters including Los Angeles Poet Laureate (2014-2016) Luis J. Rodriguez and more. Exhibitors including CLBC, County of Los Angeles Public Library, Kensington Books, Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation, Farm Fresh To You, Los Angeles Philharmonic and many others will be participating.
