Events this week, 11/9 – 11/12

Libros Schmibros is closed this week and will reopen in Boyle Heights Wednesday 11/16, but we and our partners are staying busy with events this week!


Our partner organization, the East West Players in Little Tokyo, begins performing the play The Language Archive. 11/10 – 12/4, come catch this wonderful play about language, life, and love!

From the press release:

“Meet George, a linguist, a master of languages, who cannot express his love for his wife–and ends up losing her. Follow this whimsical and heartbreaking look at love and language that asks, “How do we save what is dying?” “

FRIDAY, 11/11

At 7PM in Mariachi Plaza, come catch a free screening of Aventurera – a Cine Negra classic about good women, bad women, and the men who love them.

Libros Schmibros is organizing this screening as part of Night and the City: LA Noir in Poetry, Fiction, and Film.


At noon in East LA, friends of Libros Schmibros Seite Books are organizing a free zinemaking workshop. Check them out!
