An Evening of Poetry "Not so long ago we had two incredible voices--Neruda and Milosz. Now we have Adam Zagajewski, who also speaks passionately from both the historical and the personal perspective, in poems reduced to a clean, lyrical clarity. In one poet’s opinion (mine), he is now our greatest and truest representative, the most pertinent, impressive, meaningful poet of our time."--Mary Oliver, winner of the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize.

Media Trends: The Profitless and the Non-Profits "Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost." So said Thomas Jefferson. So if journalism is essential to democracy and quality journalism is no longer profitable--newspaper ad revenue today is a quarter its value in 2000--how do we preserve a healthy democracy? David Lesher, co-founder, editor, and CEO of CALmatters, will discuss the rapidly changing media and the emerging case for non-profits like CALmatters which are filling gaps in essential coverage.
