Friday May 3rd!!
County Historical Society is pleased to host a presentation,
book-signing and talk on the newly-released book, Radiance From Halcyon
by Paul Ivey, an Associate Professor of Art History at the University of
Arizona. He has
photographs you've never seen and stories to tell. This will be the
author's only appearance on the Central Coast open to the public. Meet
him on Friday, May 3rd at the IOOF Hall in Arroyo Grande at 128 Bridge
Street (across from McLintock's) at 6PM. Admission is free with a
donation request to support the ongoing work of the Society.
Paul Ivey's book is not only the story of the community of Halcyon past
and present, but a wide-ranging cultural history. The new synthesis of
religion and science attempted by Theosophy laid the foundation for
advances produced by the children of the founding members, including
microwave technology and atomic spectral analysis. A reviewer describes
Radiance From Halcyon as 'a mesmerizing tale of mystical kinship and
communitarian experiments fusing architecture, landscape, music, and
science that reverberate powerfully into the present.'
Don't miss this one-time chance to meet the author and hear fascinating
stories about our neighbor, the community of Halcyon. For further info:
