Behind the Book will present former County Supervisor and author Zev Yaroslavsky, in conversation with Caltech Humanities and Social Sciences Professor Michael Alvarez, discussing the recently published, Zev's Los Angeles: From Boyle Heights to the Halls of Power.

Elected to the Los Angeles City Council when he was only 26 years old, his nearly 40 years as a local elected official made him a critical player in setting policies during much of the most notable years in Los Angeles' growth into the international metropolitan center that is now a leader in business, politics, and culture.

The event, co-sponsored by Caltech's Center for Science, Society and Public Policy, will be presented in Caltech's Beckman Auditorium on Tuesday, January 30, 2024 at 7:00 PM and recorded for on-demand viewing beginning within 48 hours of the live event.

Admission is free but registration is required.
