David McGowan was born and raised in Torrance,
California, just twenty miles south of Laurel Canyon. He graduated from
UCLA with a degree in psychology and has, since 1990, run a small
business in the greater Los Angeles area. He is also a lifelong music
fan who still frequently keeps his radio tuned to classic rock stations.
McGowan’s previous books include Programmed to Kill: The Politics of
Serial Murder, and Understanding the F-Word: American Fascism and the
Politics of Illusion. We’ll discuss his new book Weird Scenes Inside the
Canyon: Laurel Canyon, Covert Ops & The Dark Heart of the Hippie
Dream. We’ll discuss the dark underbelly of the hippie “utopia.” Many
think the hippie movement began in San Francisco but it was actually
Laurel Canyon, a neighborhood in Los Angeles
