This weekend Ooga Booga, 8-Ball Community, and Bunny Jr. present L.A. PAGES, a book fair for independent publishers on the West Coast. This edition of the fair is dedicated to the late Shannon Michael Cane of Printed Matter.

“Shannon was a dedicated organizer and huge supporter of the publishing community, and his devotion inspired us to keep his hard work and legacy alive. [L.A. PAGES will] celebrate the West Coast independent publishing and art books community in an all-inclusive, non-commercial way. It will be entirely run by volunteers, music and food by local Los Angeles vendors, no brand sponsorships, and drop-off tables free of commissions run by us.” – Jezenia Romero, of Bunny Jr.*

Yanga will perform at the opening night fundraiser dinner/dance on Thursday, and musical events will continue throughout the weekend with appearances by The Black CongressÉ Arenas, and Jazzy Romero.

Friday night will feature a festival of shorts curated by 8-Ball TV.
