THIS JUST IN. I just saw on the Los Angeles Public Library's Aloud public event Facebook Page that they had an event discussing the artists in exile we read about in class a few weeks back. The event sounded great and the book sounds fascinating.
Here's the post: "From Exile to Home: LA Literary Life," Lawrence Weschler walked us through a fascinating 'writers map' of Los Angeles in this book last night- a map that tracks the residences of literary and cultural greats like Igor Stravinsky, Arnold Shoenberg, Christopher Isherwood.
Here's the link to the page. http://www.facebook.com/ALOUDla
