A Journalist Steve Lopez 11/8/09

November 9, 2009

Steve Lopez came to Occidental College last week to be a speaker. Of course I am a big fan of his articles on LA Times so I went! He spoke mainly about his book, “Soloist”, the story of a homeless/mental illness musician who attended Julliard School of Music when he was young. Mr. Lopez’s curious eyes did not miss Nataniel Ayers who was playing his half broken violin front of Beethoven statue in downtown LA. The story started that moment and grew into relationship between 2 men. I have heard this story from my husband who plays in LA Philharmonic and those 2 men got connected to LA Phil closely later.

He is a great story teller! I enjoyed every moment in his speech last week, and I look forward to reading his articles on the paper. I can’t start my day without opening the paper and smell the ink! Congratulations, Mr. Lopez!
