2018-04-2812-40-28D4S_8129Books can connect us with history in new and exciting ways. Each non-fiction book club series focuses on a subject related to the history of the Los Angeles region between 1830 and 1930. Museum staff will occasionally share items from the museum's collection that pertain to the subject of a book.

We ask that participants read the assigned book in time for each meeting.
