Lots going on at the online Los Angeles Review of Books. The site plans to relaunch a much-expanded website on April 18. It may have something in the works with KCRW. And today it announced a $25,000 grant from Amazon.com "in support of its mission to revive, and reinvent, the literary and cultural arts review for a new generation."
The money will be used to help launch the new complete LARB website on April 18, as well as to pay its prestigious roster of contributing editors, columnists and writers from Los Angeles and nationwide.
“We’re thrilled to be receiving this generous grant from Amazon.com,” said Tom Lutz, the founding Editor-In-Chief of the Los Angeles Review of Books. “Corporate underwriting grants like these are crucial to helping us realize our vision: to create and sustain the most innovative new multimedia forum for the vibrant, ongoing dialogue about books and culture.”
