A celebrated literary series of conversations, readings, and performances at the downtown Central Library, [ALOUD] brings together today’s brightest cultural, scientific, and political luminaries with the curious minds of Los Angeles.

By presenting a range of authors, scientists, thinkers, and artists, the series engages Angelenos in critical civic discourse and inspires life-long learning. Events feature local as well as national and international experts in their field paired with a moderator to facilitate a dynamic discussion. Most programs are followed by a Q&A and book signing with the audience.

Curated by Louise Steinman, author and director of Cultural Programs for the Library Foundation of Los Angeles, [ALOUD] showcases a new line-up each season informed by current events and culturally relevant and intellectually engaging topics.

[ALOUD] is funded by the Library Foundation of Los Angeles.
