Los Angeles City Historical Society and the Town Hall Los Angeles invite you to author Stephen Gee’s presentation on 

"Los Angeles City Hall: An American Icon"


Los Angeles City Hall is one of the most iconic buildings in America; some say, the world. A bold symbol of the ambition of America and its people, City Hall graces California as one of its most enduring landmarks. Now comes the definitive book chronicling its history, Los Angeles City Hall: An American Icon.

The book, penned by television producer and writer, Stephen Gee, celebrates the 90th anniversary of City Hall and all of the important decisions made within the architectural landmark’s walls that have impacted the lives of millions of people and defined the region. 

The Los Angeles City Historical Society and Town Hall Los Angeles will welcome Stephen Gee for a special Coffee & Conversations event in which he will speak about the importance of Los Angeles City Hall, its storied history, its architectural innovation, and the threats that almost destroyed it forever.
