At Book Soup on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, Chip Jacobs presents and signs his new book, Smogtown.  From the Book Soup website:

Smogtown is the story of pollution, progress, and how an optimistic people confronted the epic struggle against aerial poisons barraging their hometowns. With wit, verve, and a new look at history through never-before-compiled sources, it highlights the bold personalities involved, the corporate-tainted science, the terrifying health costs, the Buck Rogers-like attempts at cleanup, and how the smog battle helped mold the modern-day culture of Los Angeles.

Thurs., Jan. 8, 2009, 7:oo p.m., at Book Soup, 8818 Sunset Blvd., W. Hollywood CA 90069.
