For those who live and work in the NoHo Arts District of California, you may already be aware of the plethora of contemporary theatres, art galleries, cafes, restaurants, and other diverse locations that make the region truly come alive. To celebrate and further that artistic nature, North Hollywood will once again treat its residents to the NoHo Lit Crawl, an annual event that takes over the bars, cafes, bookstores, theaters, galleries, clothing boutiques, and other areas, allowing patrons to roam from location to location and hear dozens of authors read from their works . . . for free! This year, non-profit organization Shades & Shadows will be hosting a bevy of talented authors - including Fanboy Comics' own Robert Payne Cabeeen of Fearworms: Selected Poems - at Blastoff Comics in North Hollywood, which is just one of the many exciting stops on the NoHo Lit Crawl! We at FBC invite you to join us on Wednesday, October 21, at 7 p.m. at Blastoff Comics for a night of literary merriment and adventure!
