This weekend, LA Review of Books is paying tribute to Mike Davis. Davis was mythically angry, but his work also made a shared history of solidarity visible. He saw cities—big, crowded, and dense, with all their flaws—as a source of hope. We want to bring alive his vision of being together, densely, so that we can both live well and protect green spaces outside the city walls. So we’re inviting Los Angeles, the city that Mike raged against and loved, to party in his honor.
We're giving away a **limited edition zine** to commemorate Mike Davis, hosting short but radical walking tours, and giving toasts (with or without alcohol) at the Black Cat Tavern! The event is free and open to the public. We're in partnership with the ACLU of Southern California.
We'll be giving away some books, and totes, too! First come, first serve! The walking tours are free, but booking up! RSVP now!!
