Why host just one literary reading series when you can host two? Susan Hayden, the woman behind the Library Girl reading series in Santa Monica, has teamed up with Alexis Rhone Fancher and started a brand new series across town: The Window @A.G. Geiger.

Held at A.G.Geiger Fine Art Books in Chinatown one Sunday afternoon a month, The Window has a similar format as Library Girl — a handful of readers, musical performance, wine.

The first event happened in February, featuring playwright/essayist Guy Zimmerman, poets Pam Ward and Kelly Grace Thomas, and monologist Jim Turner — plus music by Susan’s son Mason Summit and Sofia Wolfson. A good crowd filled the cozy space — which is a great place to browse through pretty art books post-reading —

I hope you’ll come to the next event because I’ll be one of the readers, reading from Cake Time! Titled “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg,” the afternoon will also feature readings from Adam Leipzig, Tina Yang, and Nathan Birnbaum plus musical guests.

It all happens Sunday, April 30 at 4 pm. Admission is $10, and includes wine and other beverages. Hope to see you there!


The Window @A.G. Geiger. A.G.Geiger Fine Art Books, 502 Chung King Ct, Los Angeles. One Sunday a month at 4 pm. Cost: $10.
