Not Quite a Memoir
Saturday, November 4 at 7 PM

Come spend a unique Saturday evening at the movies with famed film critic Judy Stone. In her new memoir, Stone, a writer for the San Francisco Chronicle for 30 years, covers conversations with, among others, film directors Alfred Hitchcock, Satyajit Ray and Gus Van Sant, as well as writers E.L. Doctorow, Amos Oz, Doris Lessing, and Isabel Allende. Her memoir includes a conversation with Turkish storyteller Orhan Pamuk, recent recipient of the Nobel Prize for literature, as well as several revealing interviews with Palestinian, Israeli and Iranian filmmakers.

Felt It!

Felt It!
Tuesday, November 14 at 7 PM

There seem to be a number of knitters and crochet workers that are throwing caution to the wind and tossing their wool creations into washing machines filled with hot water. Sometimes even with a pair of denims or sneakers. Are they crazy? No. Wasteful? Certainly not. Maggie Pace, owner of Pick Up Sticks in Oakland, shows how to turn knit fabric into tightly-woven felt material that can be used for hats, scarves and purses.
