Join authors David Ulin, Charles Hood, Wendy Gilmartin, and Jason Brown as they help us see LA in a new light. This reading and discussion celebrates the publication of LAtitudes: An Angeleno’s Atlas (edited by Patricia Wakida with a foreword by Luis Alfaro,) which features entries by tonight’s panelists and other local and national authors. They tackle the big questions: Should the eucalyptus be honored as our state tree? Is the freeway system our meditation mandala? What have multimillion dollar beach homes and tracts of the San Fernando Valley have in common? The freewheeling discussion includes slideshows and a public forum about what we can expect from our natural and synthetic environment. Stick around afterward for a book signing hosted by Hennessy + Ingalls Bookstore.
