“Chapters of Our Lives"

“Chapters of Our Lives,” is a book about the lives of the CHS class of 1967. 

Carpinteria High School graduate Joe Lovett, along with 36 members of the Carpinteria High School class of 1967, is releasing a biography highlighting both the unique history of Carpinteria and their own histories – aptly named “Chapters of Our Lives.” 

Lovett first had the idea for a biography when he attended his 50-year class reunion in 2017. He wanted at least 40 of his classmates to write a chapter; after reaching out as many former classmates as he could find, through letters and by the phonebook, he now has 37 chapters, each from a different graduate of the CHS class of 1967. 

“The time that night went very quickly. On my way home to Northern California, I felt great regret that I had not stayed in touch with the people I had grown up with. I had great friends and very close relationships. I thought of a way to rectify this. I was going to write a book about those times,” Lovett writes in the foreword to the book.
