Smogtown panel Tuesday night

smogtownicon.jpgI'm moderating Tuesday night's Aloud LA lecture series panel at the Central Library pegged to the book "Smogtown: The Lung-Burning History of Pollution in Los Angeles," by Chip Jacobs and William J. Kelly. The authors will be joined by Tom Hayden, the author and former state lawmaker, and Martin Schlageter, campaign director for the Coalition for Clean Air, for a discussion of smog's hellaciously interesting past, future and politics.
