After two years...it's finally here!
Cori and I (Lara) are so excited to share From the Corner of Hollywood and diVine: You Guide to 30 Old Hollywood-Inspired Spots in Southern California with you. My intention with this book was to shine a spotlight on so many special places here in SoCal that have been around since the Art Deco era, or at least capture that vibe. It's a perfect guide if you are coming to LA for a visit, as you'll discover some really cool places that most tourists have never heard of. And if you live here in Cali, you might discover some places you've been passing by for years without giving them a second glance.
In our book, you'll find out the answers to these questions, and so many more:
Which Art Deco palace (that now hosts live stage shows) was once owned by Howard Hughes?
Which glamorous restaurant (that also hosts big band concerts and old-school radio shows) was once a fancy men's store?
Which pyramid-topped building in Downtown Los Angeles contains THIS glorious room?
You can grab From the Corner of Hollywood and diVine at www.IconicReviews.com! Thank you so much for reading my blog and supporting this work. It's exciting to think that together we can get the word out about how important it is to preserve historic buildings, and a piece of our past.
P.S. The answers are...Pantages Theatre, Cicada Restaurant, and Los Angeles Central Library.
