"The Jesus of History & the Christ of Faith"

Dr Aslan has been a frequent guest on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the Colbert Report. He spoke on "The Jesus of History & the Christ of Faith," sparking a lively discussion afterwards. Dr. Aslan signed books for those in attendance. A few books may still be available at Cellar Door Bookstore in the Canyon Crest Shopping Center.

"Art & Creativity: Alive in Palestine"

Monday, October 13 Marla Cohen, Chef
"From the Bowels of the Basement to Rubbing
Shoulders With Hollywood"
Marla had everyone laughing at her stories as she recounted her start in Southern California as a caterer to the stars, then opening a successful restaurant in Riverside. She has now left the restaurant business to pursue the development and sales of her line of "Sh*t".
Marla made tasty bites for all using several of her spice blends.
