On April 10, 10am-4pm, Monterey Public Library will host the 2nd Annual Local History Slam online. This free, all-day immersion in the richly layered history of the Monterey Peninsula features 10-15 minute talks about topics such as: the porthole in Robinson Jeffers’ Hawk Tower; Joseph Campbell’s connection to Monterey and Star Wars; Ed Ricketts and the ecology of Monterey Bay; Flora Woods, the legendary Cannery Row Madame; the Chinese village at Point Alones; local Japanese American flower growers; and much more!
A schedule of the day's presentations will be posted on the library's website. Please register in advance online at least one hour prior to the event. For questions, please contact Monterey Public Library at 831-646-3933.
