Lisa Napoli, author of Radio Shangri-La: What I Learned in Bhutan, the Happiest Kingdom on Earth|Author and KCRW journalist Lisa Napoli will read selections and discuss her book, Radio Shangri-La: What I learned in Bhutan, the Happiest Kingdom on Earth. Napoli visited Bhutan in 2007 to help start a radio station in the formerly radio-free country. Modern inventions such as roads, electricity, and hard currency came very late to Bhutan. Television was first allowed in 1999, and foreigners were only allowed to visit shortly before that. The nation has had a long-standing commitment to "Gross National Happiness," of which key components are balance, wellness, environmental preservation, and trust in government leaders. Napoli's experience illustrated how Western media is influencing a formerly isolated country, as well as finding more about herself in the process. Napoli received what she described as a "crash course in happiness" during her visit to Bhutan. Her presentation will include stories from this little-known country as she discusses the concept of "Gross National Happiness."|Adults, Seniors, Teens|2014-09-03 18:00|Cypress Park | 1150 Cypress Avenue , Los Angeles, 90065 (34.094551, -118.227402)

Cuisine in the Ancient World, From Sumeria to the Fall of Rome|Free Culinary Lecture by author and culinary historian Richard Foss. It takes a lot of energy and a good food distribution system to build the Pyramids, Babylon, and the Acropolis. Ancient peoples first developed food storage and cooking techniques that allowed cities to flourish, then evolved complex cuisines that used local and imported spices and herbs with artistry. Author and historian  Richard Foss will cover over a thousand years of  history, explaining how the first societies managed their food supply and eventually developed sophisticated and tasty  dishes. It’s a lively and sometimes surprising story that shows the ingenuity of humanity as well as our quest for new flavors and sensations.

Screening of "Slavery By Another Name"|It was a shocking reality that often went unacknowledged, then and now: A huge system of forced, unpaid labor, mostly affecting Southern black men, that lasted until World War II.

Interviews with the descendants of victims and perpetrators resonate with a modern audience. Christina Comer, who discovered how her family profited from the system, comments that “the story is important no matter how painful the reality is." 90 minutes|Adults, Seniors, Teens|2014-09-23 18:30|Silver Lake| 2411 Glendale Blvd , Los Angeles, 90039 (34.100422, -118.259598)

Through Trying Times: Stories of Loss and Redemption in the American South|Through Trying Times: Stories of Loss and Redemption in the American SouthCharles M. Blow and Jesmyn WardIn conversation with Robin Coste Lewis, poet and Provost's Fellow in Creative Writing and Literature, USCNew York Times columnist Charles M. Blow grew up in an out-of-time African-American Louisiana town where slavery’s legacy felt astonishingly close, reverberating in the elders’ stories and the near-constant wash of violence. Award-winning author Jesmyn Ward writes powerfully about the poverty of her Mississippi childhood and the pressures it brought on men and women, revealing disadvantages that bred a certain kind of tragedy. In this conversation, two accomplished storytellers take the stage to discuss their memoirs that pay homage to the troubled past of the South with emotional honesty and moments of stark poetry.|Adults, Seniors|2014-09-25 19:15|Central Library| 630 W. 5th Street , Los Angeles, 90071 (34.050499, -118.255302)

National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day at the Sun Valley Library|Turn in your unused or expired prescription medication for safe disposal at the Sun Valley Library!  The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, in conjunction with the California Department of Health, Food and Drug Branch, are coordinating a nationwide drug "take-back" day on September 27, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.  This one-day event will provide Sun Valley residents with no-cost anonymous collection of unwanted and expired medicines.It's a great time to clean out your medicine cabinet!  Protect our kids, families and the environment by properly disposing of your unwanted and expired medicines during this event.  Medicines in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisoning, and flushed or trashed medicines can end up polluting our waters.  Rates of prescription drug abuse are alarmingly high -- over half of teens abusing medicines get them from a family member or friend, including the home medicine cabinet, and often without their knowledge.  Many medicines can be harmful, and in some cases, fatal if they are used by someone other than the person for whom the medicine was prescribed.To prevent accidental ingestion by children, pets, or anyone else, please come by the library to safely discard your unused prescription medicines.No appointment necessary!  Please call the Sun Valley Library at (818) 764-1338 for more information. Sponsored in collaboration with the California Department of Health, Food and Drug Branch.||2014-09-27 10:00|Sun Valley| 7935 Vineland Avenue , Sun Valley, 91352 (34.214901, -118.370598)

Documenting Indigenous Stories Through Film: An Alternative Lens|Co-presented with Ambulante CaliforniaDocumenting Indigenous Stories Through Film: An Alternative LensLourdes Grobet and Julianna BrannumIn conversation with filmmaker Yolanda CruzTwo filmmakers share and discuss excerpts from their new documentaries that illuminate indigenous stories rarely seen on film. Bering: Balance and Resistance, by Lourdes Grobet—one of Mexico’s most renowned photographers—lyrically reflects on an Inuit community’s search for new values while struggling to reconcile the past. In Indian 101, filmmaker Julianna Brannum focuses on lessons taught by her great aunt LaDonna Harris, the Comanche activist who helped negotiate the return of sacred ground to the Taos Pueblo Indians. Far apart geographically, these two communities are irrevocably linked as they navigate their contemporary history. Both films will screen in Los Angeles in their entirety as part of the first edition of Ambulante California's Documentary Film Festival.|Adults, Seniors, Spanish Speakers|2014-09-30 19:15|Central Library| 630 W. 5th Street , Los Angeles, 90071 (34.050499, -118.255302)
