This celebration of the power and beauty of Big Sur and the poet who wrote most vividly about it is for anyone who has never heard of Robinson Jeffers.
It's for anyone who has heard of Jeffers, but has never read or heard a Jeffers poem. It's for those who have read some Jeffers but didn't get what he was trying to say.
And of course, it's for those who LOVE Jeffers' poetry because his keen observations of the natural world and his passion for preserving it touches something deep within.
Come hear poems describing Jeffers' early encounters with rugged Big Sur read by local treasure and teller of tales Taelen Thomas, well-known for his depictions of Mark Twain, Jack London, John Steinbeck, Dylan Thomas and many others.
Enjoy music by singer/guitarist Alisa Fineman and flautist Elise Rotchford. If you're a Big Sur history buff, pore over historical photographs predating Highway One, mounted side-by-side with Jeffers poems describing those places.
Members of the Ventana Wilderness Alliance are eager to discuss the enormous influence the prophetic Jeffers had on the early environmental movement.
