Saturday Aug 9, 2008 5:00 PM This is a past program

Meghan Daum is a columnist at the Los Angeles Times and has written for The New Yorker, Harper’s, GQ, Vogue, and The New York Times, among others. She is the author of the bestselling essay collection My Misspent Youth, the critically acclaimed novel The Quality of Life Report, and is currently working on a book about real estate and identity entitled Give Me Shelter, due out in 2010. Nina Revoyr is the author of three novels: The Necessary Hunger, Southland, and The Age of Dreaming. Library Journal has called her new novel, The Age of Dreaming, “fast-moving, riveting, unpredictable, and profound” and Los Angeles Magazine writes that Revoyr is “fast becoming one of the city’s finest chroniclers and myth-makers.”
