Join Elisa Parhad, of EyeMuse Books, and Tom Carroll, of “Tom Explores Los Angeles,” in a Q&A discussion about Elisa’s new book, “Southern California: A Guide for the Eyes.” Tom will uncover the quirky methods Elisa used to bring the book to life, the origin of the series, and some of the amazing discoveries about Southern California she learned along the way.

River Cruise

Monday, February 15 — River Cruising in Europe

River cruises are soaring in popularity, and no wonder — they boast the “unpack once” ease of traditional ocean cruising, but offer larger staterooms and a more thorough and intimate experience of the places they visit. Join Susan Hickman, of Distant Lands Travel, for a look at the most popular river cruise routes and the variety of  experiences available in 2016.
