An event that was expected to draw many families from far away has been canceled, the LAPD announced today, hoping to spread the word so people don't make the long commute. Houghton Mifflin Books withdrew their support of the text book giveaway, therefore canceling the event scheduled for tomorrow morning at the LAPD's Hollenbeck Station on the Eastside.
