From citrus trees to spring breakers, Transforming the Irvine Ranch tells the story of Orange County’s metamorphosis from 93,000 acres of farmland into an iconic Southern California landscape of beaches and modernist architecture. Drawing on decades of archival research and their own years at the famed Irvine Company, the authors bring a collection of colorful characters responsible for the transformation.

Donation: $20. RSVP to 949.675.3952.

Balboa Island Museum Newport Beach is located at 200 B Marine Ave., Balboa Island. For more information and other upcoming events, visit www.balboaislandmuseum.org.
