Event Details

Under the Persimmon Tree is a series of free Sunday afternoon conversations/interviews between Library Director Magnus Toren and invited guests who have strong connections to Big Sur and the central coast.

This Sunday, October 27, we welcome Esalen General Manager Terence Gilbey.


Esalen Institute is an intentional community of around 140 full and part time staff formed in 1964 to pursue the growth of human potential though workshops, experiences and research. Terence Gilbey started his journey with Esalen in October of 2016 as a month long student and supported the organization through the lengthy road closure and re-opening of Esalen in July of 2017. Before joining Esalen Terence had a 25 year career as a leader and Senior Executive for large for-profit and non-profit organizations, focused on execution and mission alignment and impact. 


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!  


We record audio of each of the conversations/interviews and publish online thereby also creating an online accessible archive of good literary, historical audio to add to our existing archives. 

The Under The Persimmon Tree recordings are done using high end equipment and tech support courtesy of a grant from Big Sur Food and Wine Festival

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!
