Author and Literary Critic David Ulin Coming to Thousand Oaks Library

February 6, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

David L. Ulin is the author or editor of ten books, including his latest book, Sidewalking: Coming to Terms with Los Angeles. He has also authored The Lost Art of Reading: Why Books Matter in a Distracted Time, and the forthcoming novel Ear to the Ground. A 2015 Guggenheim Fellow, he spent ten years as book editor and book critic of the Los Angeles Times.

Ulin will discuss his career and books on Saturday, February 6, 2016 at 2 p.m. at the Grant R. Brimhall Library, 1401 E. Janss Road, Thousand Oaks. He will sign copies of the book following his talk and books will be sold at the event for $18 each. (Cash or personal check please). A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Thousand Oaks Library.

Growing out of a series of walks, Sidewalking peels back the myths, the layers, to look at the City of Los Angeles as it really is.

“Sidewalking is a profound and poetic book… This is nonfiction writing at its very best.” —Susan Orlean, staff writer for the New Yorker and author of the New York Times bestseller The Orchid Thief.

This event is FREE and open to the public. For more information contact the Library at 805-449-2660 or visit the website at www.toaks.org/library
