Check It. Bukowski at the Huntington Library.

The Huntington Library has to be one of the prettier places in LA County. Gorgeous botanical gardens, a copy of the Gutenberg Bible, and home to the rarely-blooming Indonesian corpse plant, the library merits a visit despite any of their special exhibits.

Theydo however have a recently-opened Bukowski exhibit, featuring typescripts and early newspaper printings of the poet's work.

I became a big Bukowski fan after reading the autobiographical "Ham on Rye," which will also be on exhibit.

The exhibit will be running through Feb. 14, 2011.

The Huntington Library is located at 1151 Oxford Rd. in San Marino.
