The Henry Miller Memorial Library
The Henry Miller Memorial Library is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 art center in Big Sur, CA dedicated to promoting the artistic legacy of its namesake.
It’s where Philip Glass performs “Dracula” under a canopy of redwoods.  It’s home to one of the most comprehensive Miller archives in the world. It’s where Arcade Fire held their sound-check inside a tiny cabin, surrounding a piano.
It’s a scene, described by Gillian Welch, as “how things should be – where artists in different genres and mediums all sort of coexist.”
And now the Library is bringing its omnivorous operations eastward for a week’s-worth of art, comedy, music, and movies to Miller’s old neighborhood of Williamsburg, anchored by a pop-up bookstore at the City Reliquary that will include rare original manuscripts, letters, books, and more.
From May 12-19th, this Big Sur Brooklyn Bridge will celebrate the Henry Miller Memorial Library while paying homage to the borough’s rich literary heritage.
