Smart Summer Reads (SSR) is how Ladies, Lunch & Literacy celebrates summer!
While finding you the perfect book for this summer, we promise you one of the most fun book events of the year!

Smart Summer Reads takes place on one Sunday in July and one Sunday in August in the South Bay of Los Angeles. This is how it works:

  • Six authors are invited to meet you and discuss their latest book.
  • Our meet and greet with our authors and other readers begins at 3:00pm. The bookstore opens at 3:00pm too.
  • Then at 3:15pm the fun begins: Each author will be positioned at one of six stations around the venue.
  • Readers will be assigned a starting point and then move from station to station in 10 minute intervals, giving each author approximately 7 minutes to talk about their book and answer questions.
  • After the "formal" program there is ample opportunity for readers to talk more with each author and get their books signed.
  • The program wraps up around 5pm.

Reservations are required.
