WEST HOLLYWOOD—The Jenni Kayne store is hosting a trunk show for LemLem children's clothing all this week. The collection was designed by Liya Kebede, and it's for bebes from six months to six years of age. And 10% of the week’s proceeds will go to The Simunye Trust, a charity that provides a market for artifacts created by artisans from underprivileged areas, including Africa. It's Monday through Friday, 10am to 6pm. 614 N. Almont Drive [Racked Inbox]
ECHO PARK—We're already excited for the third installment of the Little Birds reading series at Tavin. Participating authors include Janelle Brown, reading from This is Where We Live; Jillian Lauren with excerpts from Some Girls: My Life in a Harem (we read some of this in LA Weekly a couple of months ago. Mesmerizing. Million dollar shopping sprees and such); and Mandy Kahn, who'll read poems. It's Thursday, from 7pm to 9pm. 1543 Echo Park Ave. [Racked Inbox]
