On the Move: Intersection of Neighborhoods

May 4 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

On the Move: Intersection of Neighborhoods
Local residents and writers Naomi Hirahara and Lynell George discuss changing neighborhoods and how they play prominently in their novels, books, essays and research.

Hirahara will present a section of her historic novel in progress, Clark & Division, and discuss how Japanese Americans in large numbers moved to Chicago after being released from World War II incarceration camps. The Edgar Award winner for the Mas Arai and Ellie Rush mystery series, Hirahara writes nonfiction, including co-writing Life after Manzanar and Terminal Island: The Lost Communities of Los Angeles Harbor.

George will share her new book, Los Angeles Outside the Frame, a collection of essays, evocative photographs, profiles and reportage focused on Los Angeles beneath-the-surface – both the past and the here-and-now.  An essayist and journalist, George has also written No Crystal Stair: African Americans in the City of Angels, and won a Grammy for her liner notes for “Otis Redding Live at the Whisky A Go-Go.”
