Join the largest book club in L.A.! Join Culver City Julian Dixon Library as we discuss this year's One Book, One County selection L.A. Weather by Maria Amparo Escandon. This program is for adults.

Join Culver City Julian Dixon Library for a special book club discussion of L.A. Weather by Maria Amparo Escandon for One Book, One County! A limited number of titles are available for attendees; to borrow a print copy, please contact the library.

From the Publisher: "Oscar, the weather-obsessed patriarch of the Alvarado family, desperately wants a little rain. L.A. is parched, dry as a bone, and he’s harboring a costly secret that distracts him from everything else. His wife, Keila, desperate for a life with a little more intimacy and a little less Weather Channel, feels she has no choice but to end their marriage. Their three daughters―Claudia, a television chef with a hard-hearted attitude; Olivia, a successful architect who suffers from gentrification guilt; and Patricia, a social media wizard who has an uncanny knack for connecting with audiences but not with her lovers―are left questioning everything they know. Each will have to take a critical look at her own relationships and make some tough decisions along the way."

About the branch

Culver City Library was established April 1, 1915 in the new Pacific Electric Railroad Depot. The library moved to various locations throughout the city as it grew in size over the years. The library has been in its present location since 1970. The Japanese Garden in front of the library was a gift from Kaizuka, Japan, a sister city of the city of Culver City in 1974.

In January 2001, the Culver City Library was renamed the Culver City Julian Dixon Library by the Board of Supervisors in recognition of Julian Dixon, the representative for the 32nd United States Congressional District. The Honorable Julian Dixon, who passed away on December 8, 2000, spent many of his years in public service working closely with educational institutions and libraries that positively impact the lives of children.
