Glen Ellen author at arts series


On Sunday, Oct. 16, at 4 p.m., the Occidental Center for the Arts (OCA) Literary Series will host Glen Ellen author Elisa Stancil Levine and Sonoma County Poet Laureate (2018–2020) and biologist Maya Khosla, marking the five-year anniversary of the 2017 wildfires.

The writers will read from their recent works, This or Something Better, A Memoir of Resilience, by Stancil Levine, and All the Fires of Wind and Light, by Khosla. The ensuing conversation about coping with fear and change, and the broader impacts of fire, beyond our human experience will lead to an open discussion with the audience.

Admission is free. Donations are gratefully accepted. Book sales and signing will follow the conversation. Wine, beer, and refreshments will be for sale. The OCA is located at 3850 Doris Murphy Way in Occidental. The OCA’s facilities are accessible to people with disabilities. For more information, visit or call (707) 874-9392.
