Back by popular demand! To wrap up the current exhibit Hippies Use the Back Door, the Kelley House will present a repeat of last month’s sold out, standing room only, Sunday Afternoon With…sound slideshow on November 15, 2015 at 4:00PM.

Bruce Levene will again present “A Mendocino Review”.

Musicians are Bobby Schneider, Frannie Leopold, Antonia Lamb, Graham Keighley, Carl Shrager, Steve Gurr, Joel Scott Hill and more.

Photographs are by John Bosk, Bill Foote, Nick Wilson and others. Brief excerpts from interviews with Harold Robinson, Kathy Bingham, Nancy LittleRiver and others will be heard. Poetry voices include Barbara Dorr Mullen, Jay Frankston, William Bradd, Bob Greenwood and Sharon Dubiago.

The Mendocino Review in its magazine form, was published by Levene in the 1970’s. It featured photography, fiction, fantasy, fine art and more. Viewed today this writing and art provides a superb look at our town’s recent past. Some contributors are lost to us but many still remain and those folks are especially invited to attend.

Come early for a good seat on Sunday, November 15th. The program begins at 4:00 pm. The requested donation is $5.00 for members and $7.00 for non-members. This presentation is part of a series of local conversations held on various Sundays throughout the year in conjunction with exhibits at the Kelley House Museum.
