If you’re one of the many Angelenos who enjoys “anti-” romantic comedies, stray cats, and queerness, you’re bound to love Chelsey Johnson’s new novel “Stray City,” which combines all three. How do we know? Well, would WeHo have selected the novel for its WeHo Reads series if they weren’t absolutely sure you’d love it? If you’re still not convinced, here are a few more deets, per the press release (“purr,” rather.) Will we see you there?
“The next WeHo Reads author series event will feature Chelsey Johnson, author of the novel Stray City, in conversation with Carrie Brownstein, Sleater Kinney guitarist and star of Portlandia. Johnson and Brownstein will discuss the book on Thursday, March 22, 2018 at 7 p.m. at the City’s Council Chambers/Public Meeting Room at West Hollywood Library, located at 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard. Tickets are either $27 plus tax and fees which includes one copy of Stray City (the author will sign books after the event), or $8 general admission seats.
