Barbara Kraft: Anaïs Nin and Henry Miller Revisited Santa Monica Library Wednesday October 29, 7:00 pm

Santa Monica, California – Santa Monica Public Library presents Barbara Kraft: Anaïs Nin and Henry Miller Revisited on Wednesday, October 29, at 7:00 p.m. in the Main Library’s MLK, Jr. Auditorium, 601 Santa Monica Boulevard.


Barbara Kraft, author of Anaïs Nin: The Last Days, discusses the lives and relationship of Henry Miller and Anaïs Nin.  A friend to both writers, Kraft is uniquely positioned to talk about the authors’ lives and art.  Anaïs Nin, noted for her diaries and erotica, was at the height of her fame when she took on Barbara Kraft as a writing student.  Quickly, the two became intimate friends at the moment when both would encounter tragedy: Nin’s terminal cancer and Kraft’s impending difficult divorce.  The circumstances created an environment of interdependency. Nin, despite her failing health, supported Kraft’s writing and life decisions, and Kraft became a devoted and untiring part of Nin’s support system during her last two years of life.  A book sale and signing will follow the program.
This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited and on a first arrival basis.  The Santa Monica Public Library is wheelchair accessible.  For special disabled services, call Library Administration at (310) 458-8606 at least one week prior to event.  For more information, visit
smpl.org or contact the Santa Monica Public Library at (310) 458-8600.

Currently a professor at Manchester University, he has experience in over 130 countries serving in senior positions in the British government and at the United Nations, World Health Organization and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. His dealings with many dictators and despots across the world’s trouble spots have led him to focus on the prevention of genocide and the other most horrible crimes against humanity, as special representative of the Aegis Trust.

During October and November 2013, Dr. Kapila will speak and sign books at some of America’s finest learning institutions, along with venues that are relevant to the subject of his book, which is genocide and crimes against humanity.
