The Salina Public Library has announced a new online discussion series featuring New York Times best selling authors and a Pulitzer Prize winning historian that is set to begin in July.
The first of the Author Talks series is scheduled for 8 a.m. July 7 with New York Times bestselling author and Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick Alka Joshi, according to information from the library.
Joshi, who was born in India and immigrated to the United States at age nine, published her debut novel, The Henna Artist, when she was 62 years of age.
During the Author Talk, Joshi is scheduled to "share her inspirations for her work, how her mother’s life story has influenced her writing, and her experience and role in the creation of a Netflix series based on her books," the library noted in a news release.
“We’re absolutely thrilled we’re able to bring such distinguished authors to Salina for these virtual talks,” said Stefanie Knopp, head of information services. “Their experiences and the stories they will share will certainly make for fun and lively discussions.”
More information on upcoming Author Talks, including dates and times, can be found on the library’s website, calendar.salinapubliclibrary.org. Patrons with questions can also contact Knopp at (785) 825-4624, ext. 224, or by emailing [email protected].
