Sisters Nancy and Julia Glen will soon release their second children’s book, titled Encinitas Adventures. The book is part of a series focused on Southern California communities that help children get to know the history of where they live. “Encinitas is such a diverse and interesting place,” said Nancy. “We drew our inspiration from the people, the landscape, the art, and the rich historical legacy.” Even Mayor Blakespear, a fourth-generation Encinitas resident, had a role in the project – her cat will portray the mayor character in the book!

The first book in Nancy and Julia’s series was Oceanside Adventures, with plans for Carlsbad, Vista, Escondido, and San Marcos next. Encinitas Adventures will be available for purchase in early March, and a portion of the proceeds will go towards local literacy programs. For more information visit
