hml1-300x233The Sound and the Story is curated and hosted by the Henry Miller Memorial Library, a 501 (c) 3 public benefit, non-profit organization championing the literary, artistic and cultural contributions of the late writer, artist, and Big Sur resident Henry Miller.

The Library also serves as a cultural resource center, functioning as a public gallery/performance/workshop space for artists, writers, musicians and students. In addition, the Library supports education in the arts and the local environment.  Finally, the Library serves as a social center for the community.

Founded in 1981 by Emil White, Miller’s longtime friend, the Library occupies White’s former home.  We are located in Big Sur, 35 miles south of Carmel-by-the-Sea on Highway One.

The Library hosts events throughout the summer months (May-October), including fashion shows, workshops, theater, open mics, lectures, book signings, art shows, our acclaimed Big Sur International Short Film Screening Series, and more.  With a capacity of 300 and nestled in a towering redwood grove, it is also one of the most unique live music venues in the world.

Past performers include Philip Glass, Marianne Faithful, Arcade Fire, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fleet Foxes, Band of Horses, Frank Black, Thurston Moore, Animal Collective, Al Jardine, Gillian Welch, Blonde Redhead, Laurie Anderson, and countless of local and touring bands.
