The iconic Los Angeles Times Globe Lobby will reopen to the public and host a monthly lunchtime tour series called “Thursdays @ The Globe.”

The free tours, which kicks off on Nov. 17 from noon to 1 p.m., include an opportunity to meet with LAT reporters, columnists, photojournalists, editors or executives.

The first tour will include a chat on the history of the Los Angeles Times headquarters led by architectural critic Christopher Hawthorne.

At the second tour on Dec. 8, LAT photographer Mark Boster will sign copies of his new book, Four Seasons in Yosemite.
