LITLIT, or The Little Literary Fair, is a celebration of independent booksellers, book publishers, and book makers from Los Angeles and beyond.

Hosted by the Los Angeles Review of Books and Hauser & Wirth Publishers, LITLIT brings together the eclectic contemporary in publishing, creating a unique two-day opportunity for independent publishers to offer a range of books, while sharing their missions with Angelenos of all stripes.

Presented in partnership with the 2019 LARB Publishing Workshop, LITLIT is an exciting addition to the landscape of summer activities for the culturally curious. Programming throughout the weekend will include interviews and panel discussions with publishers, authors, artists, and community organizers.
