As part of Philip Glass’ Days and Nights festival, this very special evening will feature solo performances and collaborations between Joanna Newsom, Philip Glass and Tim Fain. The event is a benefit for the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur to cover a massive upgrade project.
More about the Henry Miller Library:
In 1981, Emil White founded the Henry Miller Memorial Library in honor of his friend Henry Miller. Three decades later, thanks to the help of countless artists, musicians, and supporters the once sleepy bookstore/gallery has become one of the most innovative and awe-inspiring places in the world.
But the the place is in jeopardy. Federally-mandated health and safety requirements, including the Americans with Disabilities Act, requires upgrades that will cost a lot more than what the Library currently has in its savings. Proper plans for the required upgrades have been filed and, pending approval and FUNDING,
construction will start this Fall.
HMML has received permission to host an abbreviated 2012 (June - October) performance season Lucinda Williams, Jenny Lewis, Woodsist Festival, Grandaddy, plus more to be announced very soon will perform @ HMML this season.
The impact of any donation made at this time will be immediate and meaningful:
it will ensure the long-term survival of the Henry Miller Memorial Library.
