ALOUD on PLACES @ Lake View Terrace Branch
Co-presented with the Los Angeles Public Library

Inspired by Lake View Terrace Branch as the most eco-friendly space in the LAPL system, join us in the Valley for some fresh air and fresh voices sure to inspire all. Consummate soul man Chris Pierce and folk-punk musician Sunny War will perform. Pierce has released seven independent albums worldwide and his recent hit “We Can Always Come Back to This” was featured on the TV show This Is Us and charted at #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart. War, who became known for her street playing in Venice Beach, has now reached wider audiences with her soulful uncategorizable repertoire and has signed with Gibson Guitars and BMI. Plus, poet, essayist, translator, and immigration advocate Marcelo Hernandez Castillo will read from his award-winning work.

ALOUD on PLACES This summer the Library Foundation of Los Angeles in Partnership with the Los Angeles Public Library are presenting 5 different programs in parks adjacent to libraries. We’re bringing in music, speakers, performers, book bikes carrying curated books that reflect the entertainment that afternoon, library sign-up, and local food trucks. We’re hoping that families picnic and enjoy the music and readings in a beautiful public space. These events are meant to bring joy and fun to the community!
