LEFT COAST WRITERS BOOK PARTY: Daniel Bacon, Author of Barbary Coast Trail Official Guide and Laurie McAndish King, co-creator of the SF Waterfront App.
Who isn’t in love with the San Francisco Waterfront? We have two experts on hand to explain its most exciting points: Daniel Bacon, founder of the Barbary Coast Trail and author of Barbary Coast Trail Official Guide and Laurie McAndish King, co-creator of the SF Waterfront: Bridge to Ballpark App.
The Barbary Coast Trail is a designated path that connects 20 historic sites—many of them along the S.F. Waterfront—and local history museums in San Francisco, California.
The Barbary Coast Trail was founded by historian Daniel Bacon in collaboration with the San Francisco Museum and Historical Society. The trail was inaugurated in May 1998 and originally marked with painted images. The first 150 bronze medallions to mark the trail were installed by 2000. The medallions were designed by Daniel Bacon and illustrator Jim Blair.
Laurie McAndish King’s S.F. Waterfront App., great for anyone exploring the area, is available from Sutro Media and can be downloaded through iTunes.
We can’t think of a more appropriate Ferry Plaza event. Visitors and locals will discover new things to enjoy!
