Laguna Beach Books: Meet Laguna Beach Author Kelly Boyd Thursday September 14 2017..
Laguna Beach Books Meet the Author is at 6:00pm.
This is a Laguna Beach Free Event.
Join in for an event with former Laguna Beach mayor, Kelly Boyd, as they celebrate the release of the new book, Laguna Beach of Early Days.
The family of Laguna Beach founding father Joseph S. Thurston claimed a shack in Aliso Canyon in 1871, when he was just three years old. Thurston’s personal account of growing up in Laguna presents an intimate look at the settler’s hardships, relationships, and perseverance.
Recalling these struggles, he paints a graphic picture of early citizens and their contributions to the growth and development of this community.
Originally published in 1947, this historical narrative serves as a marvelous, unique glimpse of a bygone era. Thurston’s grandson, Kelly H. Boyd, offers this revised edition for a new generation.
Laguna Beach Books is located at 1200 South Coast Highway.
There is a free parking lot behind the building (entrance is off Brooks Street) and street parking.
