Colleen Morton Busch: Fire Monks: Mind Meets Wildfire at the Gates of Tassajara

When: Thu., July 21, 7:30 p.m. 2011

In the summer of 2008, California burned. And when the fire near Tassajara Zen Mountain Center grew so intense that even the firefighters were evacuated, five senior monks reversed their exodus, returning to face the blaze. On Thursday, July 21, Colleen Morton Busch visits Mrs. Dalloway's (2904 College Ave., Berkeley) to read from Fire Monks: Mind Meets Wildfire at the Gates of Tassajara, her harrowing tale of Zen readiness in the face of fiery disaster. 7:30 p.m., free. 50-704-8222 or MrsDalloways.com
