You may heard about it. Olsen’s book looks at the roots of the “green” architecture movement and profiles incredible dwellings from around the globe, including – yep – Big Sur. (In fact, our boss’s home is in the book.)
But there’ll be more – much more!
The Big Sur quotient of the evening just quintupled, as Richard has also prepared an hour-long Big Sur-specific slideshow, with material that will be of special interest to locals, such as…
* Big Sur’s role in the evolution of the “wood-butcher” style
* A lot of family photos from the Trotter family
* Some very early Jean Varda in Big Sur images, and
* Certain photos that didn’t make it in his book, like Neil Young’s 1975 tour bus designed by Roger Somers (see the photo!)
The event will start at 8pm, with a discussion of the book with the author, with a slideshow of beautiful pictures from the book as well as supplementary photos to follow when it is dark. Q&A with the author and photographer Lucy Goodhart after this.
Coffee & chinese tea will be served and copies of the book available for sale at the event.
Don’t get us wrong, we love the big rock shows here at the Library. But these Big Sur community-driven events, focusing on local authors and artists, are really super-special. We encourage you to attend!
