Jazz at the library with Jym Marks this Saturday

Jym Marks, a jazz musician, poet, author, lecturer and owner of Markstyle Barber Shop in Menlo Park, is set to offer a jazz performance Saturday, Jan. 11, from 11 a.m. to noon at the Menlo Park Library at 800 Alma St.

According to the city of Menlo Park, he once opened for Thelonious Monk at Palo Alto High School in 1967. He has also maintained a tradition of walking from his home in Fremont to his Menlo Park business, about 12 miles, on his birthday each November.

People can register for the event online at is.gd/marksjazz.
