The Santa Monica History Museum welcomes author and historian James Harris, who will present the highly anticipated expanded edition of his celebrated book, “Santa Monica Pier: America's Last Great Pleasure Pier.”

The Santa Monica Pier embodies a compelling saga of resilience—battling forces of nature and political currents, adapting through evolving times. More than a tourist attraction, it has become a tangible slice of history, embodying the spirit of resilience and adaptation that defines California.

With a poignant foreword by Robert Redford, a champion of the pier’s preservation efforts during the tumultuous era, Harris’s new edition stands as a definitive compendium of the pier's rich history and cultural significance.

This event is FREE.
Santa Monica Pier: America's Last Great Pleasure Pier, published by Angel City Press, will be available for purchase.
