Nikki Meredith, Author of The Manson Women & Me: Monsters, Morality & Murder ~ Wednesday, October 3, 7 pm, The Outdoor Art Club, Mill Valley
Author Nikki Meredith will discuss her recent book, The Manson Women & Me: Monsters, Morality & Murder in a live interview conducted by her daughter, Caitlin Meredith.
Part memoir and part true-crime narrative, The Manson Women and Me is an unflinching examination of Leslie Van Houten and Patricia Krenwinkel, two seemingly normal young women who took a dark journey into the very heart of evil.
Nikki Meredith is an award-winning journalist whose work has appeared in The Pacific Sun, The Marin Independent Journal, Psychology Today, The San Francisco Examiner and Chronicle, and California Living, among others. She is a former probation officer, a licensed family therapist, and a former NPR reporter.
Caitlin Meredith, Nikki’s daughter, has a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Texas and a master’s in Public Health from Tulane. She has worked in the Actual Innocence clinic at the University of Texas law school, and currently works as a criminal legal defense consultant. Because of her criminal justice involvement and her experience with many of the issues raised in the book, her mother asked her to write the foreword to “The Manson Women and Me.”
Location: The Outdoor Art Club, One West Blithedale, Mill Valley, CA 94941

Bear's Lair Tavern opens its doors to Bay Area diners ~ it's a modern take on a Berkeley campus favorite
UC Berkeley mainstay opens with a beer garden and
a new gastropub menu
Bear Lair Tavern (BLT), a fine casual bar and grill on the edge of the UC Berkeley campus, is now open Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner.
In partnership with UC Berkeley, managing partner Reign Free, owner and founder of the Red Door Group, welcomes faculty, staff, students, families and Bay Area diners to a dynamic dining experience reflective of Berkeley's vibrant and diverse culture and deep connection to the student community.
"We are overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and support from the University and City of Berkeley. The revival of this restaurant into a new and improved dining concept shows the importance of fostering communities both on campus and in the surrounding neighborhoods. My team and I are excited to share our passion and creativity and look forward to creating new friendships and memories with diners who walk through our doors,” said Free.
The restaurant’s gastropub menu was created by Free in collaboration with longtime friend Chef David Lawrence, owner of 1300 on Fillmore. The menu features Red Door Group favorites, as well as Chef Lawrence’s hallmark 1300 Fried Chicken Sandwich with jalapeño slaw and honey mustard dressing on a brioche bun. Menu highlights also include shared plates and hearty entrees using fresh ingredients, with many gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free options.
