About Literary Los Angeles: A Road Guide

A map of Los Angeles that includes all of the literary pit stops in the city, from Long Beach to San Fernando, Malibu to East Los Angeles.

One side of this 18" x 24" fold-out map is a compendium of literary organizations and bookshops throughout Los Angeles, while the other side serves as a literary landscape of the city as seen through the eyes of Los Angeles-based writers Wanda Coleman, Nina Revoyr, Luis J. Rodriguez, and David Ulin. Each unique voice offers its own perspective on how the city, combined with a love literature, has shaped them. Proceeds from the sale of the map will benefit 826LA, a non-profit writing and tutoring organization.

Literary Los Angeles: A Road Guide was produced with support from Pen Center USA, Poets & Writers, and 826LA. Funding for this map was made possible by the Ayrshire Foundation.

826LA is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students ages six to eighteen with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write.

Our services are structured around the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention, and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success.

With this in mind, we provide after-school and in-school tutoring, creative workshops, field trips, help for English language learners, and assistance with student publications.

All of our programs are challenging and enjoyable, and ultimately strengthen each student’s power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in his or her individual voice.
