About

Lyra Kilston is a writer and editor in Los Angeles focused on history, architecture, design, and urbanism.

Her forthcoming book, Sun Seekers: The Cure of California (Atelier Éditions) looks at three moments in Southern California history and the many eccentric newcomers—from fervent nature-cure healers to modern architects to barefoot vegetarian hermits—who built up the region’s renown as a center for healthy, natural lifestyles long before the 1960s.
