KPCC In Person’s community-driven series “Unheard L.A.” puts Angelenos center stage, as they share first-person experiences of life in Southern California through spoken word, music, poetry, magic, and other forms.

This summer, we’re partnering with LA County Library to bring “Unheard L.A.” producers and past participants to LA County Library locations across the region.

Community members joined us July 9 as we shared some favorite stories from our first two seasons, discussed the “Unheard L.A.” submission and editing process, answered your questions, and listened to your ideas about what you’d share if selected for an upcoming show. Refreshments were served.

Don’t let the summer go by with your story unheard!
