Anna and Arianna

Our reporting is free for everyone, but it’s not free to make.
LAist only exists with reader support. If you're in a position to give, your donation powers our reporters and keeps us independent.

We don't mean to be all-Arianna all-the-time today but while the launch of her new blog seems to be the talk of the town today, she's doing something cooler later this week. On Thursday, she'll sit down for a conversation with the amazing Anna Deavere Smith at 826LA. There are lots of things to like about Ms. Smith -- like her consistent casting as key government figures in films like "Dave", "American President", and TV's "The West Wing" -- but for Angelenos it really should be her one woman play, Twilight: Los Angeles.

826LA is in the SPARC Building in Venice and the discussion will begin Thursday at 7:30 PM. $25 donations will be taken at the door but you should also rsvp to info[at]
