As part of the year-long celebration of ‘The Book of Joy’ by Archbishop Desmond Tutu and His Holiness the Dalai Lama with Douglas Abrams, the Virginia Yerxa Community Read will host Tibetan monks from the Gaden Shartse Monastery of southern India for three activities at the Colusa County Free Library in March.

■ Tuesday, March 27 at 7 PM, Morse Conference room. Slide show presentation about the monastery, followed by question and answer session.

■ Wednesday, March 28, 3 to 4:30 PM, main floor of the library. Sand mandala and calligraphy activities geared to families and children.

■ Wednesday, March 28 at 7 PM, Morse Conference room. “World Peace and Unity of All Religions” lecture/presentation.

The monks will also be available Thursday morning for individuals who would like to schedule a healing ritual or personal blessing. Arrangements can be made through Lobsang Wangchuk, (562) 225-3072.

As with all Virginia Read activities, these events are free to the public; however, the monks will be accepting donations for their monastery. For more information about the Virginia Read Day events on April 28, visit www.virginiaread.net.■
