“The most entertaining reading series ever” (Los Angeles Times), Literary Death Match returns to the Hammer for the first-ever Kids Edition. Four children’s book authors will read and be judged by kids pulled from the audience. Featuring Caldecott Medal–winning author Jon Klassen, award-winning author Isabel Quintero, Hair Love writer-director Matthew A. Cherry, actor and author Kelli McNeil, and comedian and writer Zach Anner.

Hammer Kids is made possible through the generosity of the Anthony and Jeanne Pritzker Family Foundation. Hammer Kids also receives support from friends of the Hammer Museum's Kids Art Museum Project (K.A.M.P.), an annual family fundraiser. Additional funding is provided by The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation, GRoW @ Annenberg, and The Winnick Family Foundation.

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from an anonymous donor.

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, The Samuel Goldwyn Foundation, an anonymous donor, and all Hammer members.

Public programs advancing social justice are presented by the Ford Foundation.

Digital presentation of Hammer public programs is made possible by the Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.
