Eva Kilgore: Book signing in Seal Beach, Santa’s coming to Pacific City


Anderson Gallery Book Signing

Some paintings by renowned American watercolor artist Milford Zornes are at the White House and in the Library of Congress collection.

Zornes died in 2008 at the age of 100.

The painter’s son-in-law, Hal Baker, spent years of research, and added his personal experience with the painter in his biography of Zornes, “Happiness Is Warm Color in the Shade.”

Baker will be signing his hardcover book from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 17 at the Anderson Art Gallery in Sunset Beach. It’s at 16812 Pacific Coast Highway, near Warner Avenue. Info: 562-592-4393.

Here Comes Santa Claus!

Santa is making an unexpected visit to Surf City with two of his elves on Nov. 18. The jolly old soul will be dropping from the sky (that’s all I know), landing on the sand and then whisked to Pacific City by the PC Pedal Squad.

Your little ones are welcome to take a photo with Santa. Candy canes will be given out. The event starts at noon, and he’ll be leaving for the North Pole by 2 p.m. Info: gopacificcity.com
