Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base

Event Type: Adult Program
Age Group(s): Adult
Date: 5/26/2011
Start Time: 6:30 PM
End Time: 8:00 PM
 Myths and hypotheses about AREA 51 have long abounded, thanks to the intense secrecy enveloping it. Some claim it is home to aliens, underground tunnel systems, and nuclear facilities. Certain skeptics and conspiracy theorists believe that the lunar landing itself was filmed there. And this prevalence of rumors is in large part due to the fact that no credible insider has ever divulged the truth about his time inside the base. Until now. Annie Jacobsenís AREA 51: An Uncensored History of Americaís Top Secret Military Base (Little, Brown; On-sale May 17, 2011) is the first book based on recently declassified documents and, perhaps more importantly, first-hand, eye witnesses to the base history, which makes it the seminal work on the subject. Join LA Times columnist Jacobsen and several local former Area 51 employees as they discuss the legendary, top-secret base.
