Get Literary

Last night, Fling Girl moseyed on over to Book Soup on Sunset for a reading from the latest issue of SLAKE. Author, actress, comedian and all-around funny lady Lauren Weedman read from her hilarious short story FATAL ATTRACTION. Lauren was FLING GIRL LA’s January Take 10 so that makes us cool by association… right? Sorta? Thanks guys!

Slake is a quarterly filled with writing and images all about the city we love — good old L.A. It was founded by former L.A. Weekly editors Laurie Ochoa and Joe Donnelly and they have events all over town so get off that couch and stop watching the dang Kardashians and go to their events! That way you’ll have something cool to talk about on dates.

Speaking of getting off the couch, if you live in L.A. and haven’t spent time wandering around Book Soup you best get yourself to the bookstore. Sure everyone is reading 50 Shades of Grey on their Kindle (yawn) but there’s a lot to be said for wandering around and picking up all kinds of cool books — art books on Mark Ryden, an illustrated guide to Bukowski’s LA, the latest from Mindy Kaling, or one of our faves, Kenneth Anger’s juicy pop history Hollywood Babylon.

So get literary and support your local book lovers and book sellers.
Y Fling Girl
