The Los Angeles Review of Books Moves to Crossroads of the World

Los Angeles, CA - The Los Angeles Review of Books (LARB) announced today it is moving its headquarters to the historic arts and business center Crossroads of the World, in the heart of Hollywood. LARB will officially open its new location on October 1 at 6671 Sunset Blvd., Suite 1521, Los Angeles, CA 90028. 

"We are truly excited to be moving to Crossroads of the World, the historic landmark situated in the center of Los Angeles," said Tom Lutz, Editor-in-Chief of the Los Angeles Review of Books. "Crossroads of the World is the perfect home for LARB as, just like Crossroads, we are a community of artists, writers, critics, and readers who span the globe."

Crossroads of the World is recognized by both the US government and the city of Los Angeles as an architectural landmark. The complex became a Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument in 1974 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. Crossroads was initially designed as an international shopping center, with buildings that represent a variety of architectural styles ­- French, Italian, Spanish, Moorish, California Mediterranean, Cape Cod/Early American, and includes a European Village and the Streamline Moderne-style "ocean liner" - all offering Angelenos in the 1930s a taste of the world when travel was prohibitively expensive.

The building is now a center for the entertainment industry, and producers, publishers, writers, film and record companies, publicists, casting agencies, costume designers - and now the Los Angeles Review of Books - all call Crossroads of the World home.

Morton La Kretz, the owner of Crossroads, added, "We are pleased to welcome the Los Angeles Review of Books to Crossroads of the World. As Los Angeles's premiere literary and cultural arts magazine, they are a perfect fit for our Crossroads community."
