Wednesday, June 19 - Tom Lutz, LA Review of Books

Tonight on Bibliocracy, on KPFK 90.7 FM at 8 PM:  TOM LUTZ.  My guest is local literary hero Tom Lutz, a friend of readers and writers.  His Los Angeles Review of Books has in two years since its online debut not just filled the gap created with the loss of so many regular newspaper book review venues, but established a community of cultural workers well beyond being only an alternative. LARoB is a collective invention of mind and spirit that defines literary life in our region and beyond. As Founding Editor-in-Chief, Lutz brought on board the LA Review of Books website dozens of talented Southern California writers, offering essential reviews, essays and interviews.  Organized as a non-profit reader-supported online journal, where critics, journalists, artists, filmmakers and scholars convene and celebrate the life of the mind, LA Review of Books is committed, as its mission statement declares “to the intellectual rigor, the incisiveness and the power of the written word.”  Dig it.  Tom Lutz is a teacher – at UC Riverside-  a critic, and reviewer. He is also the author of Doing Nothing: A History of Loafers, Loungers, Slackers, and Bums in America, Cosmopolitan Vistas: American Regionalism and Literary Value and Crying: A Natural and Cultural History of Tears.  Join me in conversation with the Founding Editor in Chief of everybody’s favorite literary arts website, the Los Angeles Review of Books, soon to be a quarterly hard copy magazine in addition to an essential online resource for bibliophiles, activists, thinkers and creative Angelenos everywhere.  Not yet discovered LARoB?  Here’s the link, friends:  Donate, subscribe, share.
