The West Hollywood Public Library

My presentation is from 7pm-8pm. It’s on a Friday night and being held in the community room.

The library is also having a reception following my presentation for an architectural exhibit concerning historic properties at 8pm-9pm upstairs.

The West Hollywood Public Library is located at 625 North San Vicente Boulevard. The architects were Steve Johnson and Jim Favaro.

The library is across from the Pacific Design Center so when you look out the windows you see this.

The library created this wonderful brochure for the event. You have to RSVP though. See the red box. There is free parking attached to the library and there will be a substantial amount of food at the reception.

The event went Great! This was the line before the event. Photo courtesy of the City of West Hollywood.

This was the crowd inside the event. YAY, a full house. Photo courtesy of the City of West Hollywood.

The Los Feliz Public Library

It’s part of this library’s Architecture and Beyond series.

My presentation is from 6:30pm-7:30pm. It’s on a Thursday night.

I’ve gone to many of these presentations and they always get a good crowd.

The Los Feliz Public Library is located at 1874 Hillhurst Ave. in Los Angeles, California.

The library has a nice little patio in the back.

I’m so looking forward to this because I’ve been to many of the previous ones. They usually get a good crowd.

Oh, they also have my book in the display case. YAY!

The event was cancelled due to the corona virus.
