If you’ve never heard of Book Soup, you’re missing out on a true Los Angeles gem. The quaint Sunset Strip bookstore is lined with books from floor to ceiling and its narrow walkways and warm lighting give the store an intimate feeling that Barnes and Noble is sorely missing.
Book Soup’s greatest draw, however, is not the atmosphere, but the programming. A steady stream of top-notch authors (many of whom are Jewish) come through the bookstore, reading excerpts, mingling with the crowd and signing books and scripts.
Here’s a sampling of the hot and steamy writers who’ll be paying Book Soup a visit soon:
Sat., Feb. 2: Writer/director Tamara Jenkins presents and signs “The Savages: The Shooting Script.”
Thu., Feb. 7: David Rieff presents and signs his loving tribute to his deceased mother “Swimming in a Sea of Death.”
