“Preserving Los Angeles" BOOK CLUB hosted by CPF
Aug 17 @ Noon
Join author, Ken Bernstein and photographer Stephen Schafer as they discuss Preserving Los Angeles: How Historic Places Can Transform America's Cities. We'll be hosting a trivia quiz to challenge our audience with your knowledge of historic Los Angeles!
Los Angeles has a diverse collection of historic resources, reflecting both the legacy of notable architects and the variety of its inhabitants. The city has broken new ground in its approach to historic preservation, identifying and protecting the places of social and cultural meaning. Preserving Los Angeles illuminates a Los Angeles that may surprise even longtime Angelenos—highlighting dozens of lesser-known buildings, neighborhoods, and places in every corner of the city. Preserving Los Angeles is an authoritative chronicle of urban transformation, a guide for citizens and urban practitioners alike who hope to preserve the unique culture of their own cities. Bernstein’s informative text is richly illustrated with more than 300 full-color images by Schafer, a nationally acclaimed architectural photographer.
Join the CPF team as they explore this ground-breaking book, and hear some 'insider' insight into capturing and communicating the little-known corners of some of California's most unique and insightful historic places. We will end the program with a discussion and Q&A. You can purchase a copy of the book from Angel City Press and other established retailers.
