About the event

ABOUT THE BOOK: Join retro pop culture humorist and historian Charles Phoenix for an entertaining and enlightening time-travel adventure in the “Land of Plenty." He'll present the colorful SoCal region as the locals saw it through the lens of their cameras in the 1950s and 1960s and take us into living rooms and backyards of real people. From Santa Barbara to San Diego, from the desert to the sea, it'll be a morning filled with futurism, escapism, the unconventional and the hauntingly normal.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Mid-century pop culture expert, Charles Phoenix is a performer, author, explorer and collector celebrating classic and kitschy American life and style. He is known for his spirited live “slide show” performances, classic car JOYRIDE videos, colorful coffee table books, and fun “field trip” tours. On TV, he has appeared on Jay Leno’s Garage, Martha Stewart, Conan, and The Queen Latifah Show. The New York Times says: “Call him the King of Retro.”

ABOUT THE CLUB: Founded in 1925, the Los Angeles Breakfast Club still thrives with food, friendship, and fun. Our meetings are held in our clubhouse, Friendship Auditorium, located at 3201 Riverside Drive, near the corner of Los Feliz Boulevard, in Griffith Park. Best described as a variety show, attendees enjoy a catered breakfast, silly songs, club traditions, and an interesting presentation from a guest speaker.
