Send a little peace around the world. Help us fold 1,000 origami cranes to send to Japan in the spirit of peace and brotherhood. The Berkeley Public Library's Playreaders will read from the children's book Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, and we will have the treat of beautiful koto music by Shirley Kazuyo Muramoto and friends. If you don't know how to fold, come join us anyway, we will have instructions and people to help teach you how.

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.
