Library Series on the Internet

by Bill Hayes

Libraries across the nation often host literary events, interviewing authors in front of audiences. Libraries of the nation’s three largest cities have archived their talks and made them available to anyone with a web connection. You can now see online library talks with a wide range of authors, artists, political thinkers, and public figures. Just go to:

LIVE from the NYPL from the New York Public Library. Video only.

Chicago Amplified from the Chicago Public Library. Audio only.

Aloud from the Los Angeles Public Library. Many audio podcasts and some video.

Below is an archived talk from LIVE from the NYPL with Thomas Friedman and Nandan Nilekani speaking about India.
