Was there an author event you missed out on at the library? Did you miss a Thrilling Tales adult story time? Don’t fret! The library records many of its events, everything from author readings to theatre previews. Found under the Books and Media tab on our homepage, Library Podcasts are sorted by year at the top of the page and by some subjects at the bottom.
Here’s a few suggestions to get you started with this great online resource (you don’t even need a library card to listen!):
In 2018, Maxwell King discussed his new book, The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers, which is the first full-length biography of Mr. Rogers. Hear the story of this enduring Icon and read the ebook yourself, along with the ebook A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood by Fred Rogers himself.
Also in 2018, we hosted the Edward S. Curtis collection. Listen as scholars, in two parts, discuss his work and its impact on American history and the Native Peoples depicted in his photographs in the Beyond the Frame Symposium. Then also listen to the special program, Honoring The Wisdom of Our Elders, dedicated to celebrating the wisdom of our local Indigenous Elders.
In late 2019, Terry Tempest Williams came to discuss her new book of essays, Erosion: Essays of Undoing. The event was beautiful and meaningful, perhaps even more so now as we witness the erosion of society more starkly all around us. She’s the narrator for the eaudiobook; it’s worth the wait. And if you need a bit of a laugh, give a listen to writers Lindy West, author of Shrill: Notes From a Loud Woman, and Luvvie Ajayi, author of I’m Judging You: The Do Better Manual, as they discuss their books, blogs, feminism, and baehood going bad.
Find these great podcasts and many, many more on our Library Podcasts page.
