The little hamster Raffi, which was a present from his father, has become the victim of a kidnapping. Rocky the smuggler, who was just released from jail, has stolen Sammy’s mother’s car while Raffi was still in it. Sammy misses his father who is working in Afghanistan as much as his hamster.

12:00 PM Book Signing: Nick Agelidis Nick Agelidis will exhibit photographs complementing the release of his new book, Mongolia: Beneath the Eternal Blue Sky.

Nick was born and grew up in Australia. He got the travel bug early when his parents took him on a six-month vacation around the world at the age of 10. He went to England in his twenties to complete a PhD in engineering, then to the US in his thirties to work in the automotive industry, which took him to the Netherlands and France in his forties, and back to the US in his fifties. He currently lives with his wife in La Jolla, California.

Nick has always been a keen photographer, and his extensive travels have given him plenty of opportunities to indulge his passion. A few years ago he left a hectic corporate career to focus on photography. Nick’s images of La Jolla have been published in a book titled La Jolla: A Photographic Journey by Sunbelt Publications and featured in the press and on TV. He has a broad body of work from the US, Europe, India, China and elsewhere, which he is constantly expanding.

2:00 PM Stage: Pride and Prejudice The outspoken Elizabeth Bennet faces mounting pressure from her status-conscious mother to secure a suitable marriage. But is marriage suitable for a woman of Elizabeth’s intelligence and independence? Especially when the irritating, aloof, self-involved… tall, vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aristocratic Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn. Literature’s greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical, or so full of life as it does in this effervescent new adaptation. Age limit: 18+

4:00 PM Sacra/Profana: Border X-Sings Sacra/Profana offers the final concert of its Tenth Anniversary season, presenting Border X-sings, a timely musical presentation that takes on issues of immigration, borders, nationalism, and historical perspective. The first half of the program will highlight the complicated nature of national identity by featuring the music of European colonialists alongside music and texts from indigenous sources as well as music from the African-American tradition, born out of slavery. Through this we seek to illuminate influences, conflicts, and the common humanity inherent not only in the music of that time, but evident in us all today. The second half of the program features music by contemporary composers on issues of immigration, refugees, national identity and belonging.
