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.

See Printed Matter link below for full list of participating publishers and information on new fundraising editions by Sonya Sombreuil, Milano Chow, Devin Troy Strother, Jeffrey Cheung, Cali Dewitt, Barry McGee, Kate Hall, Jen Shear, and Kandis Williams.
