The Future of LARB: Cocktails & Conversation with the Editors-in-Chief

January 14, 2023 6:30 pm — January 14, 2023 8:00 pm

The Future of LARB: Cocktails & Conversation with the Editors-in-Chief

Please join us for a celebratory evening of cocktails and conversation with LARB’s Editors-in-Chief about the future of the Los Angeles Review of Books, reading, print, the book review, criticism, Sunset Boulevard, gin, democracy, the L.A. River, and more at the home of LARB Founders Tom Lutz and Laurie Winer.

You, our community members, are the future of LARB. Whether you’ve been with us since the beginning or you’re new to our pages, come reminisce and hazard a guess at the road ahead with the eminent writers, teachers, and advocates atop our masthead. Ring in 2023 with LARB.


6:30pm: Cocktails

7pm: Conversation and Q&A


LARB thanks Future Gin for generously donating the evening’s libations. Future Gin is a women- and queer-owned and operated distillery. Its founders created a spirit that represents everything we love about California, from its natural bounty to its forward-thinking. Future combines the structure of a dry gin with the vibrant flavors of Southern California. Meyer lemon, honeysuckle, and grape leaf are distilled alongside traditional botanicals to produce a gin that’s as classic as a martini and as bright as our future.

This event takes place indoors and outdoors. For the health and safety of all in attendance, masks are highly encouraged. The home is wheelchair accessible. Street parking is available only.


Those who contribute at the LARB Benefactor level or above during our year-end fund drive receive complimentary tickets to this event and will be registered automatically.
