Welsh poet Peter Thabit Jones has performed on several occasions at the Henry Miller Memorial Library, including the launch of Poems from a Cabin on Big Sur, a collection of poems deriving from the first of his ongoing Big Sur residencies.

Dylan Thomas first visited Big Sur in 1950, when he arrived unannounced at the door of Henry Miller, whom he had met in Paris. Thomas met Robinson Jeffers in Carmel on that visit. In 1951, on a second swing through this area, Dylan and his wife Caitlin enjoyed the newly opened Nepenthe bar. The couple joined Robinson Jeffers at a dinner in Carmel.


Peter Thabit Jones leads a discussion at a poetry reading
with members of The Seventh Quarry magazine
