San Fernando Valley
Fred Berk invites the
to a special sports
For those who want to hear about the history of professional sports in Los Angeles from an expert, the event to attend is the Bill Dwyre lecture at the Richard Riorden Library in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday, July 15, at 2:00 pm.
Bill Dwyre has been sports editor for the Los Angeles Times for 25 years, and has received many awards for his writing, including special recognition for his coverage of the 1984 Olympics.
The lecture is being sponsored by the Los Angeles City Historical Society, together with the history department of the Riorden (central) Library. It's free to the public, and will be in the Mark Taper Auditorium inside the library.
Parking after 1:00 pm is only $1.00 if you have a library card, and have it validated in the garage. The garage entrance is on Flower Street, just south of 5th Street. This should also be an opportunity to meet members of the Los Angeles City Historical Society, and help create a bond between the many local history organizations in the region.
