PORT OF LOS ANGELES — The authors and illustrator of a children's book about the Port of Los Angeles will sign copies Thursday evening at a San Pedro bookstore.

Authors Judith Love Cohen and Robyn C. Friend, along with illustrator David A. Katz, focused "A Cleaner Port. A Brighter Future" on efforts made in recent years to make the port more environmentally friendly.

The book also helps young readers understand how goods from overseas travel through the port and end up in stores across the United States.

The signing will take place at 5 p.m. at Williams' Book Store, 443 W. Sixth St., San Pedro.
