About the Book

The second volume of Life in Pacific Grove, California makes deeper connections to our community through essays and personal stories by local authors. Like the Butterfly Effect—the idea that seemingly small and insignificant actions taken by one person can have a profound effect globally—the sharing of these stories can have a long-lasting ripple effect on our community and outward. From the history of local events such as Good Old Days and Feast of Lanterns, a look at the city in the 1970s, and how Pacific Grove has become a haven for writers seeking inspiration, this volume illustrates how the seaside town continues to transform to bring joyful memories for visitors and residents alike.

This is the second book in the Stories of America series, created to build community spirit throughout America.
