The Last Bookstore, the largest independent bookstore in Southern California, is hosting a book signing Saturday afternoon for Hancock Park author Tere Tereba. Tereba will read a passage from her 2012 biography Mickey Cohen: The Life and Crimes of L.A.’s Notorious Mobster.
The book is a great read – especially for people interested in the history of our City. Tereba’s research is meticulous and the book is full of great stories and rich pictures that bring the past to life.
