Gay Marriage Decision/ Amigos de las Americas/ "Dead Lucky"


Gay Marriage Decision The California Supreme Court recently decided to overturn a ban on gay marriage. The ruling overturns a California voter-approved law that defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman. Today on Insight, you'll hear what this means for California and the nation and what might happen next.

Amigos de las Americas  You’ll learn about a non-profit organization that takes high school and college-aged volunteers to Latin America to work on sustainable community-based improvement projects. Amigos de las Americas, a nation-wide secular organization, partners with community members and organizations, including local governments and chapters of the Red Cross and the Peace Corps.

"Dead Lucky"  You’ll meet Lincoln Hall, an Australian mountain climber who survived a night in the "death zone" on Mt. Everest without oxygen. He's written a book about his experience, "Dead Lucky," and he'll tell you what it was like to be left for dead by other members of his May 2006 expedition team.

Lincoln Hall will speak and offer a slide show before the Bee Book Club at 6 p.m. today at the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria, 828 I St., Sacramento. It is free and open to the public. Information: (916) 321-1880 or (916) 321-1128.
