The Stories We Tell - Public Television in Southern California


Sponsored by Union Bank and a co-production with the University of Southern California Libraries, the Emmy Award® winning LOST LA, now in its third season, uncovers the dreams that built modern-day Los Angeles through documents, photos and other rare artifacts.

Share a passion for history with LA City Archivist Michael Holland and Lost LA producer Matthew Crotty and explore an episode from story idea to archival research; to production for broadcast, to a teachable curriculum. Other panelists will include educators who helped shape the curriculum.

Admittance is free and open to the public.
