The Henry Miller Library is proud to announce the launch of Big Sur Sound and Story, the Library’s new outdoor audio listening series!!

Every Sunday in June, July, and August visitors will lay out on the Library lawn beneath redwood trees, under the stars, steps from the Pacific, and listen to the world’s most amazing stories as the sun sets.unnamed

Certain installments will be curated by some of the most acclaimed story-tellers in the English-speaking world, including The Truth, Unfictional, the Kitchen Sisters, Radiotopia, Wiretap, and more TBA!

It’s true: they’ve signed on to select their favorite audio pieces and in most cases they’ll make the trip to Big Sur and discuss their selections in person!

Other Sundays we’ll be playing stories selected by our own “listening committee.” In fact, we’re accepting submission as we speak, so if you have any friends with amazing stories to tell, tell them to submit them now here!

unnamed-2Can it get any better?  Yes it can!

At the end of the summer, our illustrious jury (which includes Bob Edwards of NPR) will select the three “best of the best” and the winning selections will be played at our gala finale!

So what can you do to support this amazing new program?

  • Like us on Facebook and tell your friends!!
  • Submit your story to us!  Click here for guidelines and instructions.

We’d like to think of Big Sur Sound and Story as our Big Sur International Short Film Screening Series mashed up with your favorite story-telling podcast: compelling and poignant narratives plus the majestic Big Sur vibe (minus the actual film.)
