Around the neighborhood

When last we heard from Larchmont Chronicle founder Jane Gilman, she was announcing publication of her book in our October issue. Since then, despite COVID-19 restrictions, she’s had a whirlwind tour around the neighborhood discussing her book.

In November, Gilman spoke at a Zoom luncheon for the Wilshire Rotary. Also, Chevalier’s Books posted a talk between Gilman and former Fourth District Councilman Tom LaBonge. They discussed some of the little known bits of history regarding Hancock Park. A video of the conversation is available at and on YouTube.

Gilman also discussed her work and the history of the neighborhood with native Hancock Park-er Lisa Hutchins at the home of Yvonne Cazier for a benefit for St. Vincent Meals on Wheels last month.

When we reached out to Gilman to see where she might be next she quipped, “Alas, I haven’t heard from ‘60 Minutes’ yet.”

You can find “Inside Hancock Park” at Amazon and at Chevalier’s Books.
