“In a strange way, I feel like a salmon swimming upstream to reach its birthplace,” said Jonathan White, author of “Tides: The Science and Spirit of the Ocean,” as he shared tales of his worldwide adventures with the audience at the Malibu Library Speaker Series event on Wednesday, May 17. 

White’s insatiable curiosity about how tides work, how they vary, their uncontrollable powers, and why they are so dynamic began during his Malibu childhood.
