Mob Era L.A.

I’m fortunate to be affiliated with the L.A. Police Museum. I’ve been there for three years as an archivist and have been involved in all sort of great projects. In addition to my archiving duties I helped to curate the limited run Black Dahlia exhibit that was open earlier this year.

Because I know that you are all fans of true crime, and of fact-based fiction, I want to tell you about a terrific event that the LAPM has planned for January 9, 2013 — an evening with James Ellroy [L.A. Confidential, et al.], and Paul Lieberman [Gangster Squad]! Space is limited so if you’re interested act soon to avoid disappointment. You will not want to miss this!  I’m going to be there — I hope that you will join me.

  1. Joan, you’ll have to give us an update after the event. I am loving this site! It’s so interesting and I’m learning so much. Keep up the good work. 🙂

    • Thank you so much, Sherry! This blog is a labor of love for me, and I’m very lucky because I’ll never run out of material!

  2. Joan, I notified the members of The Black Dahlia in Hollywood website of the event on Jan 9th. We have several members that live in LA and would probably want to see the exhibit. I hope you don’t mind. Come visit bdih sometime. The main page is worth the visit and we would love to have you.

    • Excellent. When I left the museum today the event was almost sold out, so they should probably move quickly.
      And yes, I’ll definitely visit the site (I believe I’ve seen it before, but need to make a return visit). — Joan
