Couple of events

The issue of foreign journalists being detained entering the U.S. and deported for lack of a visa that terrorists, tourists and most business visitors aren't required to have (who can forget Sue Smethurst) keeps coming up. On July 7, the L.A. Press Club and PR Newswire are gathering a panel to talk about it. The panel includes the local field director for Customs and Border Protection in L.A., the U.S. Consul-General to Tijuana and the press attache to the German consulate in Los Angeles. Matt Welch moderates. More info (I hope) at the Press Club site. And on July 21 in West L.A., the Publishers Association of Los Angeles is holding a panel on book publishing. More info on their site.

Also, July 6 is the next Zócalo forum at the Central Library, co-sponsored by L.A. Observed. It's with husband and wife journalists Amy Wilentz and Nick Goldberg, talking about the Middle East.
