To Hell with LaLa Land—L.A. Is Book Land

Enough with the clichés about L.A. being only about movies, TV, and juice cleanses. We’re here to report that our city’s small-press scene has been exploding.

Check out Eagle Rock–based Unnamed Press, which is rocketing to success with outstanding fiction and nonfiction; their sister operation, the nonprofit Phoneme Media, is also making waves.
