Once known for floating corpses and drug deals, Echo Park Lake on this afternoon is a pastiche of sights and sounds: ice cream vendors, Spanish conversations, seagull chatter and not-too-distant church bells. Children blow bubbles, a group of men plays checkers and volunteers offer free HIV testing. Four writers -- Steve Abee, a schoolteacher and poet, and three of his former students -- melt into the scenery too, reclining on the grass between palm trees.

Sometimes, even a $1.3-million museum exhibit isn't quite enough. At least if the subject is as sprawling as Los Angeles. To supplement the exhibition "L.A.: light / motion / dreams," the Natural History Museum crafted a performance series that begins Saturday with readings by L.A.-based writers.

The literary persona of Los Angeles was once viewed through the hard-boiled prism of Raymond Chandler's urban knight, Philip Marlowe, or against the soul-sucking Southern California landscape of Joan Didion. On Sunday, participants at the Festival of Books spoke of its literary reinterpretation by a new generation of writers and poets whose themes reach deep into Latin America, across the Pacific Rim or into the heart of a rediscovered United States.

The producer of a recent evening of improv comedy and cultural and political commentary at the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum believes he was asked to step down from that post by the museum board because of some jokes directed at President Bush. Comedian Peter Bergman -- best known for his work with the comedy troupe Firesign Theatre -- said the Oct. 1 "First Friday" event called "Laugh L.A." "was supposed to shake up the culture, but really, we weren't left of 'The Daily Show'."

On a recent Thursday afternoon, 16 students ages 12 to 19 gathered around three fold-out tables in an Echo Park storefront on Alvarado Street. Shelves of film canisters, movie journals and how-to guides lined the bright red and teal walls of the 900-square-foot space. Three teachers and a guest speaker instructed the kids to use an array of wooden blocks, plastic figurines and other knickknacks to build miniature models of their ideal cities. The brainstorming session will eventually culminate in a 16-millimeter student-made film that focuses on urban planning.

A curly haired boy in glasses approached the lectern and grabbed the microphone. Hot and slimy Wrapped in foil, Three bucks a box, Tastes like it's spoiled, Sushi isn't good from a trunk. The audience laughed. The boy beamed. Steve Abee, published poet and seventh-grade English teacher, smiled and sauntered toward the mike. "Ladies and gentlemen, that was Mateo Tate. He'll be at King Middle School all week. Just come by my room."
