Get Ready To Crawl!

Lit Crawl L.A. has come and gone, but the night’s memories won’t be going anywhere anytime soon!

Many thanks to Congressman Tony Cardenas for awarding Lit Crawl L.A. a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition

It’s our honor to bring this unique literary festival to the Southland.

Deep, provocative and humorous readings and performances were rife throughout the NoHo Arts District while delicious food and the distinct glow of neon signs bolstered the night’s cordial vibes.

A heartfelt thanks to our amazing event volunteers who made the night happen- we could not have done it without you!

The drum-fueled liveliness of the opening ceremony got things started with an energetic flair and the closing party capped off the night with a relaxing atmosphere Eclectic Fine Foods & Spirits. What happened in between will likely differ from person to person, but that’s part of the beauty of Lit Crawl L.A.
