Dogs vs. Cats? No need to take sides. The library has something for both!

Local Mideast Expert to Speak on "The Hidden History of How the US Was Used to Create Israel"

Sacramento resident Alison Weir, an Internationally-recognized writer and speaker, will present a talk on Wednesday, July 10 at the Davis Branch of the Yolo County Library on the topic "Against Our Better Judgment: The Hidden History of How the US Was Used to Create Israel," from 6-9 p.m (full details at end).

The talk will present fascinating and little-known information from Weir's upcoming book on the topic. Weir is president of the Council for the National Interest, an NGO based in Washington DC and founded by former Congressmen and top diplomats, and founder of If Americans Knew, a think tank that focuses on Israel-Palestine.

Weir has written extensively on the Middle East conflict, traveled independently in the West Bank and Gaza, and traveled the world to speak about her experiences and her findings.

Bike Fun Mural Coming to Downtown Davis

Bike Fun Mural Coming to Downtown Davis

The Davis Art Center and Paint Bike Fun are collaborating to create a community mural in downtown Davis on the wall arches at the corner of 3rd and F Streets. The project is part of the Art Center’s 2013 Discovery Art Program, “Momentum: Art in Action, Creativity in Motion.”

Community members of all ages are invited to contribute to a “Bike Fun” mural that will celebrate all the ways we enjoy bikes and bike-riding in Davis. Lead artist Danielle Fodor is currently soliciting images both realistic and fantastic - from pictures of actual people and places to imaginary creatures whizzing along on bizarre contraptions.

Vaca High string quartet joins touring Beatles musical

Vaca High string quartet joins touring Beatles musical

When the touring show "In My Life: A Musical Theatre Tribute to the Beatles" comes to the Vacaville Performing Arts Theatre on May 3, be on the lookout for two quartets -- not just one.

The Vacaville High School String Quartet has the privilege of joining the professional actors on stage to add an element of orchestral texture to the evening.

"In My Life" is the musical retelling of the Beatles story through the eyes of manager Brian Epstein and featuring the live music of tribute band Abbey Road. The band features Chris Paul Overall ("Paul"), Gregory Wilmot ("John"), Jesse Wilder ("George") and Axel Clarke ("Ringo"). Brian Epstein is played by Alxander Jon. The production includes multimedia, period costumes and vintage instruments. It has toured for years, with a critic for the Orange County Register at one point declaring, "If you see one tribute show, see this one --smart and loads of fun."
