Boston Bruins Moment of Silence and National Anthem
When the Sox, the Celtics, the Patriots, the Bruins are champions again – to the chagrin of New York and Chicago fans - the crowds will gather and watch a parade go down Boylston Street.

Yesterday marked the debut of our Literary L.A. feature, which highlights literary hotspots across the city. Want to go where Ray Bradbury wrote “Fahrenheit 451” on a type writer fueled by dimes? We have you covered.
And of course, the tool’s a work-in-progress, so send over your feedback on authors, works or mentions you’d like to see included!
Check out the tool here, or get psyched for this weekend’s Festival of Books, running from April 20-21 at the USC Campus.
I’m reblogging this to bookmark it.
