Will Chancellor discusses in conversation with Porochista Khakpour

Book Soup

8818 Sunset Blvd, Austin, CA 90069

7:00pm

A beautiful and compulsively readable literary debut that introduces Owen Burr an Olympian whose dreams of greatness are dashed and then transformed by an epic journey and his father, Professor Joseph Burr, who must travel the world to find his son. After his athletic career ends abruptly, Owen flees the country to become an artist. He lands in Berlin where he meets a group of art monsters living in the Teutonic equivalent of Warhol’s Factory. After his son s abrupt disappearance, Burr dusts off his more speculative ideas in a last-ditch effort to command both Owen’s and the world's attention. A Brave Man Seven Storeys Tall offers a persuasive vision of faith, ambition, art, family, and the myths we write for ourselves.

Shakespeare by the Sea presents "As You Like It"

Green Hills Memorial Park

27501 S Western Ave, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA 90275

7:00pm

Love knows no rules and plot follows no formula in Shakespeare’s pastoral set play. Mistaken identity and intrigue take center stage in this comedy beneath the trees of the Forest of Arden. "All the world's a stage," wrote the Bard, and that stage comes to life as good Duke Senior lives an idyllic life as a castaway of the court...along with those with enough folly to flee their lives of luxury for dirt and trees. Into the forest come more outcasts: a girl dressed as a boy, a girl dressed as a different girl, and a fool who will fancy a country girl, while capturing the imagination of the melancholy Jacques. Girls will find boys, brother will save brother, and usurper will face the usurped. And it will all turn out As You Like It.

For audiences seeking quality, family entertainment, Shakespeare by the Sea's free performances can't be beat. Pack a picnic, a blanket and beach chair, gather loved ones, and settle in under the stars for a night of classic entertainment. The tales are timeless, the admission ticketless, and the experience priceless.
