Super library series


My husband and I spent a delighfful hour last Saturday being entertained at the Malibu Library by Ms. Stefanie Nash performing in a one-person play, “Vision Quest – a White Woman on a Red Road,” which she also wrote. This was the second of two in the Saturday Speaker Series 2004, sponsored by the County of Los Angeles Library, the Friends of the Malibu Library. The other one, the first of the series, was “The Life and Times of A. Einstein,” written and performed by Kres Mersky. Unfortunately, neither performance was well attended. Kathy Sullivan, who arranges these presentations, told us that the low tumout was due to lack of funds to adequately advertise in our locat papers resulting from the recent drastic cuts in the library’s budget.

These were two very entertaining presentations by two very professional and experienced author-actors. There are two left in the series, one scheduled for March 20 and the last one for March 27. These performances are free to the public and they begin at 3 p.m. in the library’s meeting room. I just had to write this letter to let everyone in Malibu know what they were missing. Without support from the Malibu community, we may lose not only the opportunity to spend a wonderful entertaining hour at the Malibu Library, but budget cuts may eliminate Malibu Library and the Las Virgenes Bookmobile as well.
