Standby to see Gore Vidal, a bunch of chefs, and Woz!

aloud-logo.gifI absolutely love the ALOUD programs at the L.A. Central Library. Most programs are free and they are all at the beautiful Mark Taper Auditorium at the Central Library (not the Mark Taper Forum).

If you haven’t heard of it, it’s basically a series of lectures, readings, performances, and discussions by varied presenters and special guests.

In the coming weeks, here is the schedule of their “sold out” programs (standby tix still available):

  • 11/20/06 – Gore Vidal. Point to Point Navigation: A Memoir
  • 11/28/06 – How I Learned to Cook. Panel Discussion with chefs Susan Feniger, Suzanne Goin, Mary Sue Milliken, Nancy Silverton, moderated by Barbara Fairchild, editor-in-chief, Bon App√©tit
  • 11/30/06 – Steve Wozniak. iWoz: From Computer Geek to Cult Icon: How I Invented the Personal Computer, Co-Founded Apple, and Had Fun Doing It
  • What a cool combo of people going through there in just two weeks! Unfortunately, these programs are all full, but standby tickets are still available at the door, beginning one hour prior to the program. Of course, to avoid standby, you can also get on their mailing list for updates. And podcasts of selected programs are available via KCET.

    It never ceases to amaze me what gems Los Angeles has to offer. (If anyone attends any of these programs, I would love a debrief!)
