This book is about Los Angeles, about the nitty-gritty of everyday life: its freeways, its street art, its shores. It’s about taking a closer look, digging deeper, experiencing the world from a young Angeleno’s eyes. Evening tutoring students at 826LA in Mar Vista will give you the inside scoop on Dodger games and food trucks. Others will tell you what they imagine Los Angeles will look like in the year 2049 through their utopian and dystopian tales. Of course, we can’t forget Hollywood. Be delighted by students’ very own screenplays and video game scripts. But LA isn’t just “that”: Beverly Hills, Hollywood, or Santa Monica. LA is the stories depicted in this chapbook.
