Dive into literary maps, both figurative in the case of a typescript draft of James Joyce’s Ulysses and literal with J.R.R. Tolkien’s map of Middle Earth, in this collection exhibition from the Huntington Library. Among the 70 items on display, other imaginary maps include Lewis Carroll’s 1876 edition of The Hunting of the Snark, Robert Louis Stevenson’s maps from Treasure Island and Kidnapped and Octavia E. Butler’s maps from notes for Parable of the Talents.
With the holidays behind us, January sparks images of a long plod through gray skies and chilly temperatures for most of the country—but not so here in L.A. Sure, it’s chilly, relatively speaking, but the weather is still perfect enough to tackle most of our favorite things to do outside, even with a slight uptick in precipitation. In fact, take advantage of those clear, post-rain days with one of the best hikes in L.A. Or head to one of the city’s best beaches while it’s still deserted for the season. Start the year off right with the city’s best activities and things to do in our January events calendar.
