City's WeHo Reads Presents: Tales from The Strip, A Century in the Fast Lane

Post Date:November 29, 2018 4:50 PM

sunsetstripTales from The Strip: A Century in the Fast Lane is a thought-provoking—and riotous—amble from Doheny to Crescent Heights on America’s most famous street, the Sunset Strip. From its legendary hotels and clubs to its notorious mobsters and its thriving intellectual haunts, life on the Sunset Strip from its earliest days makes Tales from The Strip a path of plenty—direct from the keyboard of journalist and raconteur Van Gordon Sauter, with visuals created, researched, curated, and designed by Robert Landau and Frans Evenhuis.  For everyone who ever danced at the Whisky a GoGo, bought spats at gangster Mickey Cohen’s haberdashery, longed to go to the Playboy Club, frolicked at the Roxy, tangoed at Ciro’s, rocked and rolled at Tower Records, or rubbed shoulders with Sir Elton John at Book Soup, this event will be a wonderful trip both down memory lane and Sunset Boulevard.

The event will take place on Tuesday, December 4 at 7 p.m. at the City Council Chambers at the West Hollywood Library, located at 625 N. San Vicente Blvd.  A book signing will follow the event. Books will be for sale by Angel City Press. A reception hosted by the Friends of the West Hollywood Library will also be part of this event. Admission is free.  RSVP is requested at: https://wehoreadstalesfromthestrip.eventbrite.com.  Free parking is available in the adjacent five-story parking structure with validation at the event.
