LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Events are a little few and far between tonight, but here are three of interest. Post any other suggestions you may have below.

POLITICS
Zócalo comes up with some interesting topics, and here’s one that seems out of leftish field: Zurich vs. LA: Which Is the Most Democratic City? Policy wonks may want to check out this discussion that compares challenges each city faces when applying direct democratic theories into action. 7:30 pm at the National Center for the Preservation of Democracy. Free, but reservations recommended.

TALK
[ALOUD] at Central Library welcomes Thomas Levenson, professor of science writing at MIT and author of nonfiction books Einstein in Berlin, Measure for Measure and Ice Time, for the [ALOUD] program Newton and the Counterfeiter: The Unknown Detective. 7 pm. Reservations required.
