Event Details

A conversation between the Henry Miller Library Director Magnus Toren and invited guests. 

This Sunday, August 25, we welcome State Senator Bill Monning.

Senator William W. Monning was elected in November of 2012 and reelected in 2016 to represent the 17th Senate District, which includes all of San Luis Obispo and Santa Cruz counties, and portions of Monterey and Santa Clara counties. 

Prior to his service in the State Legislature, Senator Monning was a professor at the Monterey College of Law and a professor of International Negotiation and Conflict Resolution at the Monterey Institute of International Studies.  He is the former president and co-founder of Global Majority, Inc., an organization committed to education, training and advocacy in the field of non-violent conflict resolution.

Senator Monning served as a Senior Fulbright Specialist, receiving Fulbright scholarships to teach and research in Peru and Chile.  Additionally, he was a member of the Monterey County court-directed mediation panel and served for four years as Executive Director of the Nobel Peace Prize winning organization, International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War.

Mr Monning received a B.A. at the University of California at Berkeley and a law degree from the University of San Francisco, School of Law.  He and his wife, Dana T. Kent, a family physician, reside in Carmel, California and have two daughters and three grandchildren.

Organizer

Henry Miller Memorial Library

The Henry Miller Memorial Library is a public benefit, non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization championing the literary, artistic and cultural contributions of the late writer, artist, and Big Sur resident Henry Miller. The Library tries to do as little as possible since we are in Big Sur a place very well suited for doing nothing. It turns out to be difficult however because Henry Miller is egging us on to promote the things he believes make life worth living like good conversation, freedom of thought, good food, sex and art in all its forms; old, new, weird and varied! Welcome!
