Happening Tuesday: James Gleick, Seymour Cassel and more

March 15, 2011

BOOKS

James Gleick: "Are We Drowning in Information?" The acclaimed science and technology writer follows up the publication of his most ambitious project yet, "The Information: A History, A Theory, A Flood," with a public discussion on how we got to an age of bits and bytes and where we go as the flood of information reaches near-biblical proportions. Petersen Automotive Museum, 6060 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles. 7:30 p.m. Free (RSVP online). (213) 381-2541. http://www.zocalopublicsquare.org

Susan Meiselas and William T. Vollmann If there is one thing documentary photographer Meiselas and author Vollmann have in common, it is perhaps their unflinching intrepidness. Meiselas has captured insurrection in Nicaragua and sadomasochism in New York, while Vollmann's writing has led him to camp alone at the magnetic North Pole and hop freight trains across the country. Hammer Museum, 10899 Wilshire Blvd., L.A. 7 p.m. Free. (310) 443-7000. hammer.ucla.edu
