The First with the Latest! Exhibit Screen Saver“The First with the Latest! Aggie Underwood, the Los Angeles Herald, and the Sordid Crimes of a City,” explores some of the most deranged L.A. stories that were covered by Agness “Aggie” Underwood, a local reporter who rose through the ranks to become the first woman city editor for a major metropolitan newspaper. Curated by yours truly, Joan Renner (Author/Editrix/Publisher of the Deranged L.A. Crimes website, Board Member of Photo Friends), and featuring photos from the Los Angeles Public Library’s Herald Examiner collection.

Join us for light refreshments and brief remarks as we celebrate the reporter who helped the Los Angeles Herald be “The First with the Latest.” An exhibit catalog featuring many never-before-published images from the Herald’s files will be available for purchase.

The reception is on Thursday, August 13, 2015, 6pm-8pm at the Central Library in downtown Los Angeles. Christina Rice,Senior Librarian, Los Angeles Public Library Photo Collection; Stephanie Bluestein, Assistant Professor of Journalism at California State University, Northridge, and I  will be making remarks at about 7pm.

I hope to see you there!

    • Bill — no, this current book accompanies a photo exhibit I’m curating at Central Library in downtown L.A. I’m thinking of it as an
      appetizer for the main course, my *real* book which will be out later this year. That said, the companion book is very cool. The photos are
      fascinating and I wrote the text for the book and I wrote captions for the exhibit. It’s been a gratifying project. The book is for sale
      via Amazon here on Deranged (see the sidebar).

  1. Argh! Timing is everything. I just finished “Newspaper Woman” moments ago! I’m in L.A. Although I’ve missed your presentation, is there anyway I can buy the companion book from the Central Library as opposed to Amazon?
