Behind the Bark: What Sea Lions Have to Tell Us about the State of our Coastal Waters
Friday, April 29
7:00 p.m. inside the Library

What can sea lions teach us about the state of coastal California fisheries? It won’t surprise you that they can teach us plenty. But, what do they have to tell us about cancer? Disturbingly, there’s a tale to tell there as well. Dr. Jeff Boehm, veterinarian and Executive Director of The Marine Mammal Center, will describe the work of this non-profit hospital for seals and sea lions, located in the Marin Headlands, and explain the connection between its patients and our understanding of the health of our oceans.

Special Event
Poetry Reading by Jodie Hollander
Thursday, May 5
7:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers

Join poet Jodie Hollander of the Varda Artists Residency Program for a reading from her poetry collection The Humane Society. Hollander’s collection has been described as, "Romantic, surreal and tender, it paints a family portrait that is a mixture of memoir, ghost story and artistic obsession, as well as being an elegy for an older, more mannered, world." Her work has appeared in journals such as The Poetry Review, The Dark Horse, The Rialto, Verse Daily and Australia’s Best Poems of 2015. She has been awarded a Fulbright Fellowship and a MacDowell Colony fellowship, and is currently the poetry editor for GARO. More on Jodie may be found at jodiehollander.com

Special Event
We View Them, They View Us: a Visit from the Animals of WildCare
Friday, May 13
5:30 to 7:00 p.m. inside the Library

Join us for a special visit from the animals of the WildCare wildlife rehabilitation center in San Rafael, including Mohave the tortoise and Sequoia the spotted owl. The animals will be at the Library in honor of the opening of a new exhibit by photographer and WildCare volunteer Robert Timineri, "Portraits of Sentient Beings: We View Them, They View Us," which will be on display in the Library through June 19. At the opening reception, volunteers from WildCare's Ambassador Program will present five live animals whose portraits we'll be viewing on the walls around us: quite literally, "we view them, they view us." This is Robert's third event with the Library. His 2013 program on crows set an attendance record. In 2015 he presented a multimedia show about elephants as part of the Library's Sausalito People program series. This special event welcomes adults and children of all ages. Refreshments will be served!

The New York Times calls it, "[Vida’s] finest book...With its echoes of Hitchcock and Highsmith, this novel is full of darting pleasures." Vanity Fair says, "Unequivocally a thriller, but more movingly, a meditation on identity." Doors open at 6:30 p.m. If you are planning to attend, please help us predict attendance by contacting Susan Watson at 331-6810 or sa.watson@comcast.net.
