52 Ways to use your Library Card: Week Three

Week Three: Hear a local author reading his/her latest book.

People should take advantage of great opportunities the library has to offer. One of those opportunities is going to a  "FREEbook talk given by an author.

There have been many great book talks by authors in the past at the Richmond Public Library. We had Meg Medina and Gigi Amateau during the summer for The Girls of Summer program as well as special guest author, Wendy Shang who wrote The Great Wall of Lucy Wu.
We also had child star, Dr. Danielle Spencer-Fields from the show, What's Happening. Even though Danielle is not from Virginia, she has family rooted here.

Expect to see more local author talks, including an upcoming talk from Reverend Benjamin P. Campbell.

Rev. Benjamin P. Campbell

Author Rev. Benjamin P. Campbell of Richmond’s Unhealed History, will lead a book talk and discussion that examines the contradictions and crises that developed in Richmond over the last two centuries. This two-part public discussion is a direct response to what is the “next step” from the Uncovering the 2010 Census program. 5:45 – 9 p.m.

Thurs. Sept 27: The Decision to Destroy Jackson Ward
Thurs. Oct 11: The Liberation of Metropolitan Richmond

More information about the author can be found at this link: Reverend Benjamin P. Campbell.
