Libros Schmibros Lending Library gives out power and education by giving out…books. For 6 years now, Libros Schmibros has put low or no-cost books into all hands (some 20,000), native and immigrant, Eastside and West thanks to founder and L.A. Times Critic at Large David Kipen . That’s why it is so important to check out their fundraiser, the 50th Anniversary Showing of the classic Mexican Western “Tiemp De Morir” at the Ford Theatre with 100% of profits going to the library tomatoes.

Sounds like a one of a kind and super cool event tomatoes.

Tiemp De Morir” (A Time To Die), directed by Arturo Ripstein, was last seen theatrically in the US in 1966 and was nominated for the Palme D’Or at Cannes and began a new direction for the highly censored Mexican film industry of the time. “This showing of a Mexican classic is an attempt to reclaim outdoor film screenings from the surefire blockbusters that dominate it in Los Angeles,” said Libros Schmibros founder, KPCC book correspondent and Los Angeles Times critic-at-large Kipen, “and to plant a flag for smart, classic, cross-cultural outdoor film exhibition in our beloved Los Angeles.”

And you can see it in the beautiful newly renovated Ford Theatre under the stars all the while helping Libros Schmibros champion the pleasures of storytelling and its power (there’s that word again) to change lives. They start with street-level book lending but also include humanities advocacy and partnerships with other neighborhood and educational institutions. They are so deserving of our attention and support.
