A fresh look at feminist icon and L.A. woman Eve Babitz


Eve Babitz is the Hollywood “It” girl you may not have heard of. In the 60s and 70s she hobnobbed with everyone from Marcel Duchamp to Harrison Ford, and became a writer upon the encouragement of none other than Joan Didion. Her talents languished in obscurity for much of her life, but author and biographer Lili Anolik is ensuring that this quintessential L.A. writer and icon receives her due. On Thursday, Jan. 10, hear her read from her new book, “Hollywood’s Eve: Eve Babitz and the Secret History of L.A.,” at Books are Magic, where she’ll be discussing this legendary woman with one of my favorite writers, Jia Tolentino of The New Yorker, alongside Sara Kramer of NYRB Classics, from 7:30-8:30pm. Free; RSVP recommended.
