Los Angeles Review of Books Honored

Online book review created by UC Riverside professor Tom Lutz is a finalist in L.A. Weekly Web awards competition

Los Angeles Review of Books logoRIVERSIDE, Calif. — The Los Angeles Review of Books, created by UC Riverside creative writing professor and author Tom Lutz, is a finalist for Best Arts & Culture Site in an online competition organized by L.A. Weekly.

L.A. Weekly Web Awards 2012 drew thousands of nominations in nearly two dozen categories for blogs, videos, podcasts, tweets and websites. Winners will be announced Sept. 19.

The Los Angeles Review of Books is a nonprofit, multimedia literary and cultural arts magazine that combines the great American tradition of the serious book review with the evolving technologies of the Web, said Lutz, the editor-in-chief.

More than 250 award-winning writers and contributing editors and more than 100 artists contribute to the online publication that is both a literary and cultural arts magazine. Lutz said LARB was created, in part, in response to the disappearance of traditional newspaper book review supplements. It recently partnered with KCRW-FM (89.9) to promote literacy and the cultural arts through joint events, a podcast series, and the program “Reviews with the Los Angeles Review of Books.”
