Richard III @Central CMR

2016 marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death.  The library has celebrated Shakespeare this year with live theater and the BBC series "Playing Shakespeare".  As the year draws to a close, we'll watch four unusual film productions in our mini film festival, "Shakespeare Outside the Box"

We begin with Sir Ian McKellen as Richard III, set in a fascist 1930's Britain.  Stay for a brief discussion after the film, released in 1995.

Berkeley Stories feat. Alan Bern @North

Berkeley Stories is a monthly series featuring the extraordinary ordinary people all around us.  The people that make Berkeley the unique place it is, and whose hands have touched our lives in unseen ways.

This month, meet Alan Bern: Born in Berkeley. Still lives here.

But time away from Berkeley changed everything: Hawaii when it became a state; Naples, Italy, when he was a teenager; the Cincinnati jail.
