David Helvarg Presents The Golden Shore
Historic LoDo: David Helvarg is founder and Executive Director of the Blue Frontier Campaign, a Washington, D.C.-based organization working for ocean and coastal conservation. He is an award-winning journalist and documentary producer, and his previous books include Rescue Warriors and Saved by the Sea. Helvarg will discuss and sign his new book The Golden Shore: California’s Love Affair with the Sea (St. Martin’s). Part history, part travelogue, part love letter, this book captures the spirit of the Californian coast, its mythic place in American culture, and its role in a state whose ongoing natural disasters and unremitting sense of renewal are intimately linked to its deep connection.
“Having lived in California for 44 years I was surprised by how much I learned from David Helvarg’s book, The Golden Shore. It blew my mind. ” —Jean-Michel Cousteau, Explorer, Founder and President, Ocean Futures Society
