Loving What Is

400 people, from Pacific Grove and beyond, gathered in the auditorium at Robert Down Elementary School on Thursday night to experience The Work of Byron Katie. It was a wonderful evening, filled with insight, inspiration, laughter and joy.

The evening was a huge success for the Library. Ticket and book sales totalled more than $10,000! (Byron Katie graciously waived all speaking fees.)

Comments from attendees exiting the hall included:
"That was a dream come true."
"Thank you, SO MUCH for bringing her to PG."
"Fantastic! We're over-the-moon."
"We hope you have more events like these."

This event was sponsored by the Friends of the Pacific Grove Public Library, as part of their Meet the Author series. All proceeds raised will be given to the Library to purchase new books and materials.
An enormous THANK YOU to
Byron Katie & the Friends of the Library.

Thank You.

The Friends of the Library and Library Staff are delighted with the community's response to this event. We're already brainstorming on who we can present next year!
