Author Talks for November

RPL is thrilled to continue offering virtual Author Talks every 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 – – 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.
