1 Comment

The next meeting of the L.A. History & Metro Studies Group will take place on Friday, November 4, 2011, at 12 noon at the Huntington Library.  This will be a panel discussion on the Bell Political Crisis.  The panelists will include: Jeff Gottlieb and Ruben Vives of the Los Angeles Times, Jerry Gonzalez, Assistant Professor of History at University of Texas San Antonio, and Gilda Ochoa, Professor of Sociology and Chicana/o Studies at Pomona College.

Jeff Gottlieb and Ruben Vives, the Times reporters who won Pulitzer Prizes for their coverage of this crisis, will recount their experience breaking the story about massive political corruption in Bell.  This will be followed by a discussion with the panelists and the audience that seeks to place the situation in Bell in historical and political context.  (There will be no pre-circulated paper for the session.)

The group will meet in Seaver Classrooms 1 & 2 in the Munger Research Center at the Huntington Library, starting at 12 noon.  A complimentary lunch will be available to those who RSVP by November 1.  If you would like to attend, please RSVP at this link.
