Easy Reader 44th Anniversary Writing and Photography Contest

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Easy Reader was founded in 1970 by Hermosa Beach residents concerned about city hall cronyism, proposals for  high rise hotels on The Strand and conflicts between the establishment and bohemian cultures. Stories and photos were solicited from the community through the pre-digital equivalent of crowdsourcing. Easy Reader wishes to thank the writers and photographers who contributed to this issue and apologize to those whose submissions we lacked the space to print. B
