Michael Krasny
 
 

Join us on Tuesday, August 29 at 7:30pm as Michael Krasny, host of KQED's Forum, switches roles from interviewer to interviewee when he speaks about his latest book, Let There Be Laughter.

The book is a compendium of Jewish jokes that packs punch after hilarious punch while offering a window into Jewish culture. Author Katherine Maxfield will moderate the conversation in our historic Villa and delve into the themes, topics, and form of this particular style of humor. 

This event is part of our Montalvo Writers Series -- featuring readings, conversations, and panel discussions with leading authors of diverse genres. Don't miss your chance to meet these writers as they present new work and discuss their craft, inspirations, and process. See the full schedule of upcoming events here

Survive the ARTpocalypse July 18
 
 
ARTpocalypse Now!
 
 


Are you creative enough to survive the apocalypse? Join us on Tuesday, July 18 from 5-8pm for ARTpocalypse Now! -- and find out!

This evening of creative and collaborative problem-solving puts participants in a post-apocalyptic world where the machines have taken over and our personal technological devices are no longer functional. You'll move through different stations around Montalvo's grounds, using your ingenuity to address different survival scenarios. Can you create shelter? Find food? How will you communicate with the world?

We promise this evening will be full of surprises. Come as a group or by yourself -- either way, you'll make some new friends as you navigate these fun and challenging exercises on a beautiful Montalvo night.

This class is part of our Montalvo Summer Nights program, a series of after-hours arts practice workshops where experimentation is encouraged and light refreshments (including wine) are provided in a fun, social setting. All necessary art supplies are included in the registration fees, and all experience levels are welcome!

To register, click the button below or call the Box Office at 408-961-5858, Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm.
