INDIAN WELLS, Calif. - Television journalists Lisa and Laura Ling will speak in Indian Wells Thursday night as part of the Desert Town Hall annual speaker series.  

The sisters' talk will start at 6 p.m. at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa. They will discuss Laura's arrest in North Korea while filming a documentary along the China-North Korea border, and Lisa's work to set her free, ``along with other stories full of compassion and hope,'' series spokeswoman Chris Martello said.

CBS Local 2 will be at the event where Samantha Cortese and Brooke Beare will introduce the Ling sisters at the Youth Town Hall portion of the event.
