why did san francisco get rid of nearly all of its graveyards and how did they do it? learn how and why by attending an outdoor screening of trina lopez's film a second final rest: the history of san francisco's lost cemeteries. this is, i think, the first event taking place in kalmanavitz hall's nearly completed outdoor amphitheater! the outdoor screening is sponsored by the thacher gallery, film studies, and media studies. free.

do you ever wonder what a sustainable society would look like? author ernest callenbach offers one vision in ecotopia, published in 1975 and frighteningly and inspiringly relevant today. callenbach's talk is part of, i believe, professor steve zavestoski's global environments/societies class and takes place in lone mountain 100. free.

If you missed the Trina Lopez film, we have it at Gleeson Library.

I wish I'd read this sooner, sorry to have missed Callenbach.
