About the EventAdventures by the Book is honored to partner with Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at San Diego State University for a San Diego Lighthouses Edventure with authors Kim Fahlen and Karen Scanlon, as they discuss their book, Lighthouses of San Diego. The Old Point Loma Lighthouse stood watch over the entrance to San Diego Bay for 36 years beginning in 1855 until its light was extinguished in 1891, in preference of a new location. Today, the Old Point Loma Lighthouse still stands watch over San Diego, sentinel to a vanished past. What is the fascination with these iconic beacons that have saved countless lives?
Join twin sisters Kim Fahlen and Karen Scanlon who photograph and study the lighthouses documented in their book, Lighthouses of San Diego. Enjoy a tour of the lighthouse by the two authors, followed by a talk about lighthouse history and stories.
