On October 3, 1993, Central Library opened its doors to the people of Los Angeles for the first time in over seven years. Originally designed by Bertram G. Goodhue, the building had been a Los Angeles icon since its dedication in 1926, with striking architecture and artwork both inside and out. More importantly, it had always served as a vital cultural institution with a renowned research collection navigated by expert staff. 

Walking around the Los Angeles Public Library, one may come across a bilingual quotation in Spanish and English by Alfonso Reyes: “No hay amigo tan complaciente como un libro.” “There is no friend more obliging than a book.” And when entering the library and walking into the International Languages, one may find a little book in different languages – The Little Prince – that may indeed become an obliging friend for many readers – whether one opens the book for the first time or revisits it anew.

The Middle Grade Book Party panel will take place on Saturday, October 12 at 12pm in Teen’Scape.

Some of the best stories for young people being written right now are for that tween-aged audience of 8-12-year-olds. But why should they get to have all the fun? These books are so good, we think everybody should be reading them.

Meet our panelists:

Barbara Brauner & James Iver Mattson, authors of The Glitter Trap

The Historical Fiction panel will take place on Saturday, October 12 at 11am in Meeting Room A.

Great historical fiction transports us to other places and times while telling us stories we can’t forget. The authors on this panel have written about Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge and the Killing Fields, Parisian society in the 1880s, and World War II pilots breaking the gender and color barriers.
