Wake up with Charles Phoenix on the morning of Saturday, October 15! Ambassador of Americana Charles Phoenix will kick off the 2016 L.A. Historic Neighborhoods Conference with a fun-fueled whirlwind adventure extravaganza exploring undiscovered, underrated, and misunderstood mid-century architectural gems, past and present.
Learn how to “read” your neighborhood! During this hour-long performance, you’ll find inspiration in one-of-a-kind places that you may never have noticed before, but nonetheless shape the fabric and character of your community.
With his trademark enthusiasm, gracious wit, and keen eye for oddball detail, the Southern California in the 50s author shares L.A.’s spectacular space-age drive-ins, coffee shops, bowling alleys, strip malls, shopping centers, extreme homes, dingbat apartments, fast food stands, theme parks and much more all in glorious color!
Prepare for your local pride to swell!
