Secret Los Angeles: The Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure - presented by Danny Jensen

February 25th at 7:00 p.m. - at New Life Church of the Nazarene.

Our February speaker, Danny Jensen, has spent over a decade enthusiastically exploring the hidden corners of Los Angeles. He’s always on the lookout for unusual landmarks, obscure histories, and delicious, under-the-radar restaurants. Danny is the author of Secret Los Angeles: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure and 100 Things to Do in Los Angeles Before You Die. From secret gardens to free-roaming bison and goats, legends of old Hollywood to cultural revolutions, wild public art to obscure museums, his books offers places for readers of all ages and interests to explore across the city and county. What happened to the lost canals of Venice? Where is the “Statue of Liberty" of Los Angeles? Did an ancient civilization build tunnels under the city? Jensen's books offer surprising answers to these questions and more.

His work as writer, editor, and photographer has appeared in both local and national publications, including Time Out, Thrillist, TravelZoo, KCET and more. He is the Managing Editor of Cheapism, a national site dedicated to budget-friendly travel, food, and more.
