The Henry Miller Memorial Library is a non-profit art space in Big Sur, California.
Founded in 1981 by Emil White, we are celebrating our 30th anniversary!
We are able to offer events thanks in part to book sales, so please visit the Henry Miller Library Store.
We'd appreciate your kind tax-deductible donations.

St. Paul taught us that modesty is a great attribute and that bragging is bad. But he was also a misogynist. So forgive us for giggling like a schoolgirl when we came across this… Q: Was there a particular venue … Continue reading
Our pal Brian Ziffer is also part of the HML “Family.” You may know him as the guy who projects amazing psychedelic stuff on our big screen during movies. He’s also the mad-genius behind this new Akron/Family video for the … Continue reading
