Party Photos: Literary Los Angeles

At The Friars of Beverly Hills, June 13, 2005

Posted July 8, 2005

At our latest fête for Los Angeles' literati, the old guard—novelists, playwrights, and the like—mixed with the new (those dastardly upstart bloggers!). But the venue was classic Hollywood: The members-only Friars Club, known for its raucous, ribald roasts of legends like Rob Reiner (OK, OK, we'll pick a new literary device).
