Malibu resident Joel Harper, author of the children’s book “All the Way to the Ocean,” will appear at a book signing on Sunday at the Malibu Farmers Market. Harper will sign the book, talk about his other projects and play his skateboard/electric guitar.
With a foreword by Malibu surf legend Laird Hamilton, the book presents a message for children and adults about protecting the oceans. It is a story of friendship and teamwork, with illustrations by Marq Spusta, that leads the reader though the journey of two friends, Isaac and James, as they travel from inland to oceanside.
The event will be part of a larger “Oceans Meet the Land” environmental theme at the market on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Several environmental groups and environment-friendly vendors will also be there.
