Do It. Lit Crawl 2.

Summertime is one of the best times to get your reading on and this Saturday literature nerds can bare witness to a marathon of reading around Echo Park. Those who are gutsy/inspired to share their reading can share their own work at nearby Stories Bookshop, which will have an open mic for those willing to share their work.

Hosting will be LA Times-er Carolyn Kellogg, with Slake literary journal editors Laurie Ochoa and Joe Donnelly. Writers are set to go head-to-head in a "no-holds-barred" read off, and will be judged on spirit and lyrical transcendence, and originality.

On the docket are Katie Arnoldi, Allison Burnett, Gabrielle Calvocoressi, Dennis DanzigerSamantha Dunn, James Greer, Edan Lepucki, Joseph Mattson, Graham Moore, Neal Pollack, Rachel Resnick.

Among the stops on the crawl are El Prado, The Gold Room, Little Joy Cocktails, and The Shortstop -- all within walking distance of each other.

Lit Crawl 2 is set to begin at The Echo at 6 p.m. Attendees must be 21+. Entrance is free.

The Echo is located at 1822 W. Sunset Blvd.
