ALOUD Lecture Series


Presenting its milestone 1,000th [ALOUD] program in 2010, the Library Foundation of Los Angeles continues to reach a wide audience through on site events, podcasts, and archival videos.

[ALOUD] events are free and open to the public at the Central Library along with a special selection of ticketed off-site events. By presenting a range of authors, scientists, thinkers, and artists, the series engages Angelenos in critical civic discourse and inspires life-long learning.  Events feature local as well as national and international experts in their field paired with a moderator to facilitate a dynamic discussion. Most programs are followed by a Q&A and book signing with the audience.

Curated by Louise Steinman, author and director of Cultural Programs for the Library Foundation of Los Angeles, [ALOUD] showcases a new line-up each season informed by current events and culturally relevant and intellectually engaging topics.
