Literary sizzle in “Morality Tale”

What makes a modern marriage work, especially if one of you is doing it the second time around?

In “Morality Tale,” Sylvia Brownrigg explores these themes through the voice of a witty unnamed narrator disenchanted with her life as the second wife, and tempted by the question, “Can a man and a woman be ‘just friends’?”

Hailing from the Bay Area, Brownrigg, author of four acclaimed works of fiction, will visit Bainbridge for a reading and signing at 7:30 p.m. July 17 at Eagle Harbor Book Co.

Saloutos’ work benefits library

From Greece to Costa Rica, Canada to states up and down the West Coast, Island photographer Pete Saloutos gets around.

Next stop: the Bainbridge Public Library, where during the month of July the commercial and fine art photographer will exhibit a collection entitled, “Images of China.”

Each print in the exhibit will be available for purchase; Saloutos will donate all proceeds to the library.

For information, call the library at 842-4162 or visit, where a sampling of work is available.

Calling all teens: Make your film!

Bainbridge Island Television does more than just broadcast local television; it’s also engaged in an ongoing effort to educate adults and youngsters, and encourage their filmmaking endeavors.

Late this month, BITV will offer a week-long teen filmmaking workshop to give students who have wondered about filmmaking a taste of the process from start to finish.

Students will start from scratch, writing scripts, preparing storyboards, and shooting their proejcts.

Completed films will be premiered at the end of the week to family and friends, and students will take home a DVD for posterity – and perhaps a future work sample?

The workshop runs 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 28-31, and the cost is $295. For information, call 780-2980 or visit
