Steve Lopez Event a Great Success

Mon, Sep 24, 2012 by


Award-winning journalist and author Steve Lopez spoke to a full house of about 500 people under a large tent on the Peninsula Center library rooftop on Saturday, September 22.  His talk was the main attraction of  the library’s 4th annual “One Book, One Peninsula”  community-wide reading event and was very well received.  Mr. Lopez spoke about his deep appreciation of libraries and his relationship with L.A. street musician Nathaniel Ayers.

A big thank you to Steve Lopez and to everyone who helped make this a great success!

Here is a video of the event in its entirety, followed by some photographs:
