Henry Miller Memorial Library and a Reading From the Tropic of Cancer (video)

click to watch

Henry Miller said he didn’t approve of memorials. Memorials, he said, defeated the purpose of a man’s life. Only by living your own life to the full can you honour the memory of someone. So, is the Henry Miller Memorial Library a memorial trying not to be a memorial. Maybe. The best way to find out is to come here, browse, look at what’s on the walls, listen to the music, have a cup of coffee or tea, sit down by the fire, read for a while, do nothing? Quote from the Henry Miller Memorial Library website. I hope our video captures the above feeling.
