I'll put in a plug for a talk I'm giving at the Los Angeles Central Library tomorrow (Thursday) from 12:15 pm - 1 pm in the Library Board Room on baseball books as well as my coworker, Glen Creason, giving a talk on the history of Los Angeles' old baseball parks.
My part of the talk will just be about 15-20 minutes and I'm going to give another talk on the same subject (but longer) in October on the Thursday before the World Series starts.
The Central Library is at the corner of 5th St. and Flower St. in Downtown Los Angeles. The library gives partial validation for parking with a library card if you enter the lot at 524 S. Flower St., which will put you underneath the building. It would be $1 for the first hour and then $3 per hour for each of the next two hours.
You can also take the Metro Red Line and get off at either Pershing Square and walk west on 5th to the library or at the 7th St/Figueroa stop and leave through the Hope Street exit and walk north on Hope, which dead ends at the library.
The Board Room is not exactly the easiest place to find, but there should be signs directing you to the "magic" elevator that will take you to the library's fourth floor. The building has eight floors, but only seven of them are normally open to the public. Some floors have negative number signs in front of them. Don't go to those. Well, you can but I won't be there.
