Your Creative Morning will be extra-delectable on December 17th. Alissa Walker, associate producer for KCRW's "DnA: Design and Architecture" and proprietor of the Gelatobaby blog, has just been announced as the December speaker for Los Angeles/Creative Mornings.Walker was recently named as a USC/Annenberg Getty Arts Journalism Fellow for her writing on design and urbanism and she spends her time in L.A. living in very cool Silver Lake digs, participating in Park[ing] Days, tending to her drought-tolerant garden, walking all over the city and eating gelato. All without a car. Imagine that: L.A. without a car. Delicious.

The event will be held at the Ford & Ching showroom in the Kim Sing Theater in Chinatown and it starts at 8:30 a.m. Free tickets to the event won't be available until Friday, December 10th at 11am so mark your calendars to snag a seat.

If you can't wait 'til then to get your own sampling of Walker's goodness, you can always follow her on Twitter. Her stream dispenses cool design observations, links to her latest Fast Company and GOOD writings and many real-time recommendations and questions about L.A.'s urban, architectural and gelato-filled landscape.
