Silver Lake Chronicles
In Silver Lake Chronicles, authors Michael Locke and Vincent Brook present a rich tapestry of this unique urban oasis situated between Los Feliz and Echo Park.  Silver Lake thrives as an enchanting domain filled with everyone from mansion builders to bohemians, and everything in between.  Its rich history is saturated with stories of early movie magnates like Antonio Moreno and Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle which only add to enrich the contemporary experience of the neighborhood.  

Hidden History of Transportation in Los Angeles
Los Angeles transportation's epic scale--its iconic freeways, Union Station, Los Angeles International Airport and the giant ports of its shores--is one of the most unique in the country. But what this book features are the mostly untold stories behind these feats of transportation engineering. Triumphs such as the Vincent Thomas Bridge and Mac Barnes's Ground Link buspool have also existed alongside such flops as the Santa Monica Freeway Diamond Lane and the Oxnard-Los Angeles Caltrain commuter rail.  Join Charles P. Hobbs as he recalls these and other lost episodes of LA-area transportation lore.
