Slake Launch Party

Last night your FBLA editors hit the launch party for Slake, Los Angeles’ new quarterly journal. The event packed downtown’s Caña Rum Bar with local literati, among them Jonathan Gold, Cecil Castellucci, Marc Cooper, David Rensin, and Elline Lipkin.

Partygoers gather to purchase and peruse the premier issue.

Journalist Steve Appleford and Slake editor Joe Donnelly talk shop.
