Join us this week as we talk with Mona Leirich at the Villa Aurora, about the far reaching legacy of the literary lion Lion Feuchtwanger, who escaped the Nazis to come live in exile in the Pacific Palisades.

We’ll also visit with Marcia Harris, who portrays Long Beach’s own firebrand activist, Fanny Bixby Spencer, as a living history docent at Rancho Los Cerritos.

We’ll also discuss the closure of L.A.‘s oldest book shop (104 years in San Pedro), Metro playing the eminent domain card in Little Tokyo, the aesthetic ramifications of the pending Broadway Streetscape Plan work, and a look forward to a rare Pershing Square Advisory Board meeting this week. All this and more, as Kim & Richard usher in the week of July 8th, 2013.
