Jeff Smith 4 p.m., Dec. 20
LIFE at MiraCosta College Lectures
1pm: “MiraCosta College Production, Once on This Island”, with Tracy Williams, MiraCosta college faculty.
A joyful island fairy tale with book and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and music by Stephen Flaherty begins on a fictional isle in the French Antilles. One side inhabited by ancestors of the island’s imperialist founders lives in great wealth and prosperity. The other side is poverty-stricken, yet retains great connections to the island’s mythical and mysterious deities. Perhaps by the will of the gods, two people -- one from each side of the island -- meet and fall in love.
2:30pm: “From Foul-Mouthed Dad to Novelist” with Samuel Halpern.
Dr. Halpern will talk about this journey from foul-mouthed “Dad” to his first published novel, A Far Piece to Canaan.
