Monday, September 22 Reza Aslan, Author

     "The Jesus of History & the Christ of Faith"

Our first guest, Reza Aslan, spoke to a sold out crowd. Dr Aslan is an internationally acclaimed writer and scholar of religions and the author of  the #1 New York Times bestseller Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth,  and No god but God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam. 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.

 

 

Monday, October 6   Shannon Murphy, Art Director

     "Art & Creativity: Alive in Palestine"

Shannon spoke movingly of her time in Palestine teaching computer graphics to students, both Christian and Muslim. She finished her talk with a thought-provoking video of performance art poetry by one of her inspiring students.

 

 

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.
