The Los Angeles Review of Books’ Board of Directors request the pleasure of your company at this month’s Luminary Dinner: LARB’s intimate literary dinner series. Bringing our exciting online literary discussion to life, Luminary Dinners offer you the opportunity to engage in stimulating conversations about books, plays, film, or art with invited authors and others interested in art, literature, and the creative life of the mind.
This Luminary Dinner will honor the work of Antonio Damasio, M.D., Ph.D, the world’s leading neuroscientist dealing with emotion and creativity. A decorated professor and prize-winning researcher, holder of the David Dornsife Chair in Neuroscience, and Director of the USC Brain and Creativity Institute, Dr. Damasio has made seminal research contributions to how the brain processes emotion, memory, language, moral judgment and economic decisions. He has written about these discoveries in a series of exciting and intellectually rich books, Descartes’s Error, Self Comes to Mind, The Feeling of What Happens, and Looking for Spinoza, which have been translated into 30 languages. He will talk to us and lead a wide-ranging discussion “About the Brain.”

This architecturally stunning home was recently featured along with the Eames house in the Venice Art & Architecture Tour “Channeling Chautauqua Boulevard and the Pacific Palisades.”
Architecture Champagne Tour 6:15pm.
Enjoy champagne and the sunset over the Pacific Ocean while participating in a tour of The Revello Residence. The Revello Residence is situated on the Castellammare Knoll in the Pacific Palisades. Built in 2007 by Susan Morse, it is designed to gracefully respond to a unique and spectacular site. Castellammare is exceptional both for its unparalleled views and its extraordinary geological challenges. The house utilizes natural materials, intersecting volumes, and bold cantilevers to establish and enhance relationships between the built form and the site.
Susan Morse received a Masters from the University of Chicago and worked in public policy in Oregon before discovering a love for painting and architecture at the Oregon School of Design in Portland. Susan received her Masters in Architecture from the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) and has a private practice in architectural and interior design.
