Barack Obama and filmmaker Ava DuVernay will discuss the former president’s memoir “A Promised Land” April 21 in a livestreamed event for the L.A. Times Community Book Club.
Welcome to the Los Angeles Times Book Club
Every month, we share book club selections, publish stories exploring the topic and invite you to read along. Then we host a community event with the authors and invite you to join that, too. Our focus is on stories and storytellers relevant to Southern California and the West, and our mission is to make your newspaper something not just to read but to experience — something that brings us together.
June 27: Charles Yu, the author of “Interior Chinatown,” in conversation with film critic Justin Chang.
