A String of Pearls: Pearl Chase of Santa Barbara

Event Description

In honor of Women's History Month, join local author & historian Cheri Rae for a presentation about her new publication, 'A String of Pearls: Pearl Chase of Santa Barbara', for an intimate look at the life of a woman whose name is revered in the storied seaside community, and whose influence extended throughout California and across the nation. Pearl Chase was the woman who shaped a city. For 80 years she made Santa Barbara her home—and her cause. With her keen foresight and forceful personality, she spearheaded the transformation of Santa Barbara from a dusty town devastated by an earthquake to a community of refined architecture, arts and culture, a center of environmental activism, and the birthplace of Earth Day.
