Juniors and Seniors,

LAist/KPCC’s annual open house (read: free daytime hang) is Sunday, Oct. 6 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. It’s a great way to see the inner workings of a news operation, get some goodies, meet the team of actual human people who write articles for you and your community, and ask us questions IRL.

Spend the afternoon touring the newsroom, participating in a mock-editorial meeting, indulging in food truck gluttony, and being thanked for supporting local journalism. To RSVP you can click on the link provided.
