January 25,2018 Speaker Meeting: EARTHQUAKE!

Author and historian Abraham Hoffman will give a talk on his new book “California’s Deadliest Earthquakes, A History,” an exploration of the personal accounts and aftermath of California’s most destructive tremors. A book signing will follow. This event will be held at the New Life Church in Porter Ranch (corner of Chatsworth and Reseda) and will begin at 7 p.m. After earning his doctorate in History at UCLA, Dr. Hoffman taught in Los Angeles schools for more than 30 years and has also been an adjunct professor at Los Angeles Valley College since 1974. He serves on the board of editors for Southern California Quarterly, reviews books, and contributes articles to history publications. His three other books include topics from the Great Depression, Owens Valley, and Mono Lake. Dr. Hoffman is a member of the Los Angeles City Historical Society, Historical Society of Southern California, Organization of American Historians, Western History Association, Western Writers of America, and the Los Angeles Corral of Westerners.  This event is free and open to the public. Donations are gratefully accepted. Free refreshments will be served. There is also plenty of free parking.
