Event Details

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

This Sunday, July 21, we welcome Supervisor Mary Adams 

______________________

Bonus offer! Take a leisurely ride on the Bus from Monterey/Carmel to Nepenthe (looking out the window is so easy when someone else is driving!) then just a short walk south and you are at the Library. Enjoy the discussion/interview and buy books from the Library at a 25% discount: A perk for taking the bus!

From Ms Adams' website: 
Before she was our Supervisor, Mary spent 30 years leading non-profits that helped thousands of people. In 14 years as CEO of United Way Monterey County, she raised more than $50 million to help homeless children, provide meals for seniors, make healthcare more accessible, prevent gang violence, keep families in their homes during the recession, and expand opportunity for working people. An estimated 1 in 3 local residents benefited from a United Way-funded agency or program that Mary led.

Mary Adams was recognized for this work with Woman of the Year Awards from the Monterey County Commission on the Status of Women and CSU Monterey Bay School of Business.

Prior to leading United Way Monterey County, Mary held senior leadership positions at the American Cancer Society and the American Heart Foundation, where she took on Big Tobacco, helped save hundreds of millions in funding for public health programs, and reduced tobacco-related illness and death in California. When revenue for these health programs was later threatened, Mary was brought back to save the funding, and received the American Heart Association’s Time, Feeling Focus Award for her work. Mary Adams earned her Bachelor of Science in Business Management from Saint Mary’s College.

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!
