Event with Kelly Boyd

Join us for an event with former Laguna Beach mayor, Kelly Boyd, as we 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.
