TALK: Zócalo presents Gustavo Arellano in “Orange County: Nature’s Wonderland?” tonight at 7:30 pm at The Actor’s Gang in Culver City. He’ll talk about his new book -- Orange County: A Personal History, a history of the biggest little county in America as seen through four generations of his Mexican family – as well as life, politics and history behind the orange curtain. From the Zócalo description: “From its settling by the Spaniards to today's popular television shows, residents of Orange County, California have always imagined their homeland as Eden on the Coast, a respite from urbanization, where one only needed to work, vote Republican, and hate Mexicans to partake in the American Dream.” Sounds like it’ll make an interesting discussion.

FILM*: REDCAT hosts the Jack H. Skirball Screening Series tonight that features “Antoni Muntadas and Marshall Reese: Political Advertisement VII (1952–2008).” This is a film anthology of political advertisements from 1952-present, and has been updated to include spots from this year’s presidential campaign. “[It] charts the selling of the American presidency in the media age.” The screening begins at 8:30 pm tonight.
