Durant Book Club: The Maid's Version|Join the Durant Book Club in discussing Daniel Woodrell's "The Maid's Version." We'll be meeting in the Community Room.The American master's first novel since Winter's Bone (2006) tells of a deadly dance hall fire and its impact over several generations. Alma DeGeer Dunahew, the mother of three young boys, works as the maid for a prominent citizen and his family in West Table, Missouri. Her husband is mostly absent, and, in 1929, her scandalous, beloved younger sister is one of the 42 killed in an explosion at the local dance hall. Who is to blame? Mobsters from St. Louis? The embittered local gypsies? The preacher who railed against the loose morals of the waltzing couples? Or could it have been a colossal accident? Alma thinks she knows the answer-and that its roots lie in a dangerous love affair. Her dogged pursuit of justice makes her an outcast and causes a long-standing rift with her own son. By telling her story to her grandson, she finally gains some solace-and peace for her sister. He is advised to "Tell it. Go on and tell it"-tell the story of his family's struggles, suspicions, secrets, and triumphs.|Adults|2014-07-15 13:00|Will & Ariel Durant| 7140 W.

Defining Their Identity: The Changing Roles of Women in the Post-War Era - Opening Reception |Come and join the Los Angeles Public Library Photo Collection, Photo Friends, and the Valley Times Advisory Council in opening the new exhibit  Defining Their Identity: The Changing Roles Of Women in the Post-War Valley as Documented by the Valley Times Newspaper. Opening remarks will be provided by retired Valley Council Member Joy Picus. Photo Friends will have copies of a 150+ photo companion catalog available for purchase, and light refreshments will be served.The popular view of women in the years following World War II has come to be of homemakers like television's Donna Reed and June Cleaver who maintained picture perfect households in suburban settings. In many cases this was indeed the primary role assumed by women of the era, but it wasn't the only one. Women pursued advanced degrees, became professionals, held office, excelled in sports, fought for equal rights, and became civically involved, and often while running those households.  The San Fernando Valley has come to exemplify the post-War suburban growth that took place throughout the country and the Valley Times newspaper (1946-1970) was there to document this expansion along with the Valley's dynamic women. This latest exhibit explores the changing roles of women through the lens of the library's Valley Times' image archive. ||2014-07-15 18:00|Central Library| 630 W. 5th Street , Los Angeles, 90071 (34.050499, -118.255302)

Teen Movie Night |Enjoy a movie screening of Back to the Future (1985; rated PG) starring Michael J. Fox with popcorn and snacks.  SummaryContemporary high schooler Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) doesn't have the most pleasant of lives. Browbeaten by his principal at school, Marty must also endure the acrimonious relationship between his nerdy father (Crispin Glover) and his lovely mother (Lea Thompson), who in turn suffer the bullying of middle-aged jerk Biff (Thomas F. Wilson), Marty's dad's supervisor. The one balm in Marty's life is his friendship with eccentric scientist Doc (Christopher Lloyd), who at present is working on a time machine. Accidentally zapped back into the 1950s, Marty inadvertently interferes with the budding romance of his now-teenaged parents. Our hero must now reunite his parents-to-be, lest he cease to exist in the 1980s. It won't be easy, especially with the loutish Biff, now also a teenager, complicating matters. Beyond its dazzling special effects, the best element of Back to the Future is the performance of Michael J. Fox, who finds himself in the quagmire of surviving the white-bread 1950s with a hip 1980s mindset. Back to the Future cemented the box-office bankability of both Fox and the film's director, Robert Zemeckis, who went on to helm two equally exhilarating sequels. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi|Teens|2014-07-17 15:30|Angeles Mesa| 2700 W. 52nd Street , Los Angeles, 90043 (33.994850, -118.322899)

The Interior Circuit: A Mexico City Chronicle|The Interior Circuit: A Mexico City ChronicleFrancisco GoldmanIn conversation with Rubén Martínez, Fletcher Jones Chair in Literature & Writing, Loyola Marymount UniversityIn a follow-up to his masterful Say Her Name, The Interior Circuit is Goldman’s emergence from the grief of his wife’s death as he embraces Mexico’s capital as his home—a city which stands defiantly apart from so many of the social ills and violence wracking Mexico. Yet as the narco war rages on and with the restoration to power of the Institutional Revolutionary Party, Mexico City’s special apartness seems threatened. In setting out to understand the menacing challenges the city now faces, Goldman delivers a poetic and philosophical chronicle that explores a remarkable and often misunderstood metropolis.|Adults, Seniors|2014-07-17 19:15|Central Library| 630 W. 5th Street , Los Angeles, 90071 (34.050499, -118.255302)
