"Nowhere Is Our Real Home": Ken Brower appearance at HMML June 5 has been cancelled

UPDATE: the event I describe below—Ken Brower's appearance on June 5 at HMML, the Library has announced, has been cancelled.
Later today—Sunday, June 5th—the speaker series "Nowhere Is Our Real Home" continues at the Henry Miller Memorial Library with author Kenneth Brower.

In Big Sur and throughout the West, a new economic wave spurred by the internet is causing dramatic impacts. Some immediately presenting issues: workers’ housing, short-term rentals, the commercialization of neighborhoods, and traffic congestion along Highway 1.

Ken is the oldest son of the pioneering environmentalist David Brower— and editor of the Sierra Club exhibit-format book Not Man Apart: Photographs of the Big Sur Coast, Lines from Robinson Jeffers—a book that belongs on every Big Sur bookshelf or coffee table.

The talk begins at 3 pm. This event is by donation. Tea, coffee—and most importantly, discussion!—will be readily available.
