WeHo Reads: LA Times Journalist Patt Morrison and KPCC Host Larry Mantle
- Date: September 28, 2018 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
- Location: West Hollywood Park Public Meeting Room/City Council Chambers
625 N. San Vicente Boulevard
West Hollywood, California 90069
The City of West Hollywood’s Arts Division and the Friends of the West Hollywood will present a WeHo Reads event featuring Los Angeles Times journalist Patt Morrison in conversation with KPCC radio host Larry Mantle, discussing Morrison’s new book Don’t Stop the Presses! Truth, Justice, and the American Newspaper, on Friday, September 28, at 7:00 p.m. in the West Hollywood Park Public Meeting Room/City Council Chambers, 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard, West Hollywood, CA 90069.
In her book, Morrison showcases the importance of newspapers—in both words and startling imagery—and documents the impact of the medium. The press’s mission—as Morrison emphasizes—is uniquely set out in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights: “Congress shall make no law…. abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.”
The evening will include a book signing and a reception to celebrate the Library’s seventh anniversary, and is part of the City’s WeHo Reads literary series (www.weho.org/wehoreads). Books will be for sale by Angel City Press. A book signing will follow the conversation. The Friends of the West Hollywood Library will host a reception as part of this event.
