Jorge Martin will perform an ambient music set after my reading. A reception with light refreshments and book sale and signing will follow our presentations. Copies of my book will be on sale by Los Nietos Press.

SUGGESTED: Wear comfortable clothing and shoes appropriate for walking on dirt paths. A brimmed hat that will stay on in a breeze is recommended. If you prefer not to sit on the ground, bring a cushion or small blanket to sit on.

FREE and open to the public. Donations to the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy encouraged. Huge gratitude to the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy for hosting us!

LOCATION:
Courtyard Sundial in front of The Nature Center
White Point Nature Education Center & Preserve
1600 W. Paseo del Mar, San Pedro, CA, 90731

ABOUT PARKING: A free dirt parking lot closest to the The Nature Center is available. "The parking area is open daily from dawn until dusk. Parking is available in the lot accessed from the west end Paseo del Mar from sun up to sun down. Please note that due to the landslide, access to White Point Nature Preserve is via Western Avenue."

FYI: We come from Long Beach, so we park on the east side of White Point Nature Preserve on Paseo del Mar between S Weymouth Ave and Jackstadt St and walk in to save the trip of driving around to the lot.
