J.J. Kapp and Robert G. Phelps will read an excerpt from the biography they co-authored with the late Joe Kapp, along with Jim Rainey (L.A. Times), a Q&A moderated by Ignacio Ornelas Rodriguez, PhD and signing of purchased books to follow. Books will be available for purchase in our bookshop at the event!
