Turbo engines, turbo fans, foil bearings, heat transfer and even the first inflatable airliner evacuation slides.

Katy Geissert Civic Center Library Community Meeting Room - 3301 Torrance Blvd.
Though the Prohibition period in which alcohol was banned in the USA ended eighty years ago, the cultural reverberations of that era are still with us. Some of the changes, such as the rize and glamorization of organized crime, are obvious, but there are more subtle changes that affect our daily lives more profoundly. Culinary historian Richard Foss will give an illustrated lecture on America as it was before Prohibition took hold and how dining options, food preferences, dating habits, and other elements of our culture were changed by a utopian cultural experiment gone wrong. Richard Foss is a journalist and author who is currently working on a book about the history of dining in the air, from the zeppelin era to the space station. He is the author of "Rum: A Global History" and a memeber of the Board of the Culinary Historians of Southern California.

In celebration of the Torrance Public Library's Centennial, the Torrance Historical Society and the Library are teaming together to present Torrance Library Early Years : Why in a house? This program is one of many in a series of events highlighting the 100 years of service the Library will provide to the community. The Torrance Historical Society venue is befitting for the event, as the Museum was built in 1936 with WPA funds and was home to the Main Library until 1978. Jamie Ruth Watson, Librarian and Historian, will discuss the early beginnings of public libraries in the United States. Jared Sidney Torrance's vision for his new community will be shared as will the history of Mrs. Isabel Torrance Henderson, who opened the first library in her living room in 1913. The presentation will be illustrated with photos and other original materials from the Torrance Historical Society Museum's archives. Refreshments will be served compliments of COSTCO. Seating is limited and will be available on a first-come/first-served basis -- no reservations are required.

Bartlett Senior Center - 1318 Cravens Ave., Old Torrance
The Old Torrance Neighborhood Association (OTNA) has invited representatives from Simon Property Group, Inc. (SPG), the world's leading retail real estate company and owners of the Del Amo Fashion Center, to discuss the remodel of the Del Amo Mall -- one of the most recognized and successful enclosed shopping malls in America. Set to begin in Spring of 2013, first on the list of improvements of the iconic 2.3 million square foot shopping center centrally located in Torrance, is replacement of the existing food court with a garden-inspired dining area and renovation of the interior of a portion of the north mall, which is scheduled to be completed by this year's holiday shopping season. A highlight of the redevelopment upgrades which Simon hopes to commence in 2014, and complete by holiday 2015, is the replacement of the single level mall north of the Macy's women's store with a new two-level mall and the addition of Nordstrom. The new Nordstrom store is expected to be two levels and will connect to the existing Macy's women's store, which will have a new mall entry into its third level women's clothing departments. The March OTNA meeting is sponsored by Poppy Beauty Bar.
