This summer, RPL is thrilled to start offering two to three virtual Author Talks per month. With a variety of fiction and non-fiction authors, these live talks will inspire and allow patrons to ask questions and learn the story behind the story. This new series is all thanks to the generous support of the Friends & Foundation of the Rochester Public Library.
Participation is easy! Go to this website – https://libraryc.org/roccitylibrary – and scroll down to see the list of upcoming talks and a link to register for each talk. Once you register, you will be sent an email with the link to join the live event. You will also later receive an email with a link to the recording for use if you aren’t able to attend the live event. The library will keep an archive of most of the recorded events that can be accessed any time. Both the live events and archived recordings will be closed captioned.
Upcoming talks for August include:
- Historian and Pulitzer Prize Winner, Dr. Marcia Chatelain, author of Franchise: The Golden Arches in Black America (August 3rd)
- Liz Moore, author of Long Bright River, NYT bestseller and NPR Best Book of 2020 (August 9th)
- Dr. Michele Harper, author of The Beauty in Breaking, a NYT bestseller and NYT Notable Book (August 22nd)
