Book Talk with Denise Sallee

Denise Sallee speaks
about her latest book:
Daughters of Time.
Wednesday, September 30th
6 pm.
When Denise isn't assisting patrons at the reference desk, she's busy researching and writing books of her own.

Come listen to her talk about her latest story of three young women who live in distinctly different historical eras: 13th century Spain, 17th century England, and 1880’s Mississippi. With a touch of magical realism the characters lives unfold in a way that shows the interconnectedness of women’s lives and the spiraling flow of the past with the future.

This is a special opportunity to hear Denise before she leaves for Ireland, where she will continue her research and writing on a book about the Irish poet Ella Young and her influence on California culture.

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.
