D.I.Y. Tie-Dye @North

Come experience the time-honored psychedelic art of tie-dye at the Berkeley Public Library North Branch!  We will set up four dyeing stations outside near the rear entrance of the library and individuals and families will be able to sign up for 20 minute slots during which they will make their own colorful creations!  White tshirts and all dyeing supplies will be provided, but you are invited to bring any while items you would like to make a little brighter.  Instruction will also be provided.  Appropriate for ages 6 and up (with parental supervision).

"Margaret of Anjou" @Central CMR

3rd floor Community Meeting Room

Feminist Shakespeare? Yes!  British playwright Lauren Jansen-Parkes has fashioned a play incorporating Shakespeare and her own original text to tell the story of Margaret of Anjou, the de facto leader of England's House of Lancaster during the Wars of the Roses.  Arrived from France for an arranged marriage to King Henry VI, the young Margaret is pushed headlong into one of England's bloodiest disputes for power.  Actors will present short scenes, then join director Libby Vega and producer Carol Lashof for discussion.
