Where: Henry Miller Library, Highway One, Big Sur CA.
When: Friday, October 9th at 7.30 PM
Contact: Henry Miller Library, 831-667-2574, magnus@henrymiller.org

This is the Henry Miller Library yearly benefit concert. Following up on previous years benefit concerts with Patti Smith and her Band, Henry Rollins, Laurie Anderson and, last year, Philip Glass & Wendy Sutter, the benefit is in support of the important cultural contributions made by the HM Library as well as the ongoing work of preserving and making publicly available the significant archives under Library stewardship.

After a successful US promotional visit with media coverage including; NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday and World Caf�, The Late Show with David Letterman, CBS Sunday Morning and a stellar performance at The City Winery in New York City, the iconic singer Marianne Faithfull returns for a major tour in support of her Decca debut ‘Easy Come, Easy Go.’ The tour includes this benefit performance in Big Sur at the Henry Miller Library on October 9 at 7.30 PM.

We are extremely grateful for Marianne’s generosity in coming to do this in support of the Library.

The evening will end by everyone joining together at the Big Sur Bakery for some of the best pizza and wine on the West coast!
