This year’s Marie Northrop Lecture Series features ethnic communities in historic Los Angeles. On June 7, Michael Okamura and Bill Watanabe will speak on L.A.’s downtown district known as Little Tokyo — from its start in 1884 through the present and plans for its future.
Admittance is free and open to the public. Parking in the underground garage is available that day for $1 (after 10 am) upon presentation of an L.A. Public Library card. You can park your car and apply for the card once inside the building. Entrance to the library garage is on the east side of Flower Street, just south of 5th Street. Flower Street is one-way, going south.
The Marie Northrop Lectures Series is co-sponsored by Los Angeles City Historical Society and the Central Library’s History Department.
