On November 5 the Friends of the Pacific Grove Library held their final Meet the Authors event of 2015. 75 people gathered to meet Victoria Zackheim and Anne Perry and enjoy their readings from Zackheim’s most recent anthology, Faith: Essays from Believers, Agnostics, and Atheists. Anne Perry is best known as a mystery writer, but she also contributed to Zackheim’s anthology. The two authors also spoke about their friendship, their personal writing processes, and their upcoming collaboration.
With the guidance of local artists Margie Anderson and Julie Heilman, about 35 children have created 8 beautiful sea murals. They are exhibited at the Library on the windows between the children's room and the main circulation room. The murals are part of the Edge of the Sea celebration continuing until the beginning of January.
