Meet and greet to be held for local author Jake Heilbrunn


A meet and greet and book signing with Torrey Pines High School graduate and author Jake Heilbrunn will be held at Bliss101 on Thursday, Oct. 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. Refreshments and tasty treats will be served at 553 South Coast Hwy 101.

After four eye-opening, life-altering months in Central America, Heilbrunn came back with a whole new outlook on life, and the material for his first book, “Off the Beaten Trail.”

The book shares Heilbrunn’s story of overcoming a chronic skin condition and depression by taking an unexpected path: he dropped out of college at 18 and went on a solo backpacking trip through Central America despite his knowledge of Spanish language not reaching far past “Hola” and “Gracias.”
