Carina Monica Montoya
It’s Malibu’s Main Street, twenty-seven miles of fabulous vistas of mountains and sea, bounded on one side by crumbling cliffs and on the other by crashing waves. But it’s also a major highway, threading through dozens of cities along the coast, linking north to south. It’s none other than the Pacific Coast Highway, and it’s the subject of a new book.
Author Carina Monica Montoya will share stories of the PCH’s storied past on Saturday, March 8 at 2 PM when she signs her new book Pacific Coast Highway in Los Angeles County at Bank of Books Malibu.
Montoya’s book follows California Route 1 as it snakes its way south from Malibu to Long Beach, stopping along the way to view the sights and discuss the history of the former Roosevelt Highway and of the towns and cities it bisects. With dozens of new photos by John Moss and vintage photos from the California Department of Transportation, Pacific Coast Highway in Los Angeles County is a great resource for tourists and local history buffs alike.
Carina Monica Montoya is a retired veteran who served in the United States Coast Guard Reserve during Desert Shield/ Desert Storm and the United States Navy Reserve during Operations Noble Eagle, Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. She holds a masters degree in liberal studies from Excelsior College in Albany, New York, and has written several books on California’s historical communities.
