The Coronado Public Library will host the launch of Joe Ditler’s latest book, “Coronado Confidential: It Can’t Happen Here,” on Monday, July 1 at 6:30 p.m. in the Winn Room.
A master storyteller, Ditler documents the memories, music, and madness of the post-ferryboat quiet little island of Coronado, “an unlikely milieu of retired admirals and aging hippies, fringed with palm trees angled and shaped by the wind.”
You’ll hear about mischief from the “summer of love” and be taken along as Ditler describes his adventures growing up in Coronado.
Joe Ditler is a professional writer, publicist and Coronado historian. Formerly a writer with the Los Angeles Times and bureau chief with the Log Newspapers, he also worked as editor-at-large at Sailing Magazine.

He also owns Part-Time PR (a subsidiary of Schooner or Later Promotions), specializing in helping Coronado businesses reach larger audiences with well-placed public relations throughout the greater San Diego County.

Doors open at 6:15 p.m. For more information, please call the library at 619-522-7390.
