January 27, 2022 (Thursday)

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Preservation expert Cindy Olnick leads off the 2022 Architecture&Beyond Lecture Series with a virtual talk on her book, “L.A. Landmarks: Lost & Almost Lost,” Thursday, January 27 from 7-8 p.m.

To sign up for the free Zoom lecture, email the Los Feliz Library: lfeliz@lapl.org with “A&B” in
the subject line.

The author explores the diversity and fragility of LA’s architectural heritage through stories of historic places we’ve lost and almost lost. From beloved icons to hidden gems, her book features more than 130 images from the Los Angeles Public Library Photo Collection, of locations including nearby Van de Kamp’s Bakery on Fletcher Drive. Olnick will share many of these photos, plus some not in the book.

Olnick says she moved to Los Angeles from Boston in 2000 largely because of its architecture. She worked with the Los Angeles Conservancy for nearly 15 years before creating her own communications practice specializing in historic places and preservation.

Olnick’s book will be available for purchase online at Skylight Books. The link is: https://www.skylightbooks.com/event/architecture-and-beyond-los-feliz-library-0. A portion of the proceeds benefit the nonprofit Photo Friends of the LA Public Library.
