Chat with an Author

In the next month, I'll be chatting with TWO famous authors. Will you join me?

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Junot Diaz will be on hand to discuss the 2009 One Book New Jersey adult selection, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, on Thursday morning, April 16 from 11:00 to 12:00, and there's a chance he'll be back for the second discussion on Thursday evening, April 23 from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Mark your calendars! -- It's only a few weeks away!

Participate in one of our online discussions and "meet" the authors! Readers from throughout the state (and even beyond) are encouraged to login to to discuss OBNJ selections. This is also your opportunity to talk to the authors about their books! Participation is completely free and there are no registration or log-in requirements. All are welcome!

Discussions of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao will be held on Thursday, April 16, 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. and Thursday, April 23, 7:30-8:30 p.m.

A discussion of Life as We Knew It with author Susan Beth Pfeffer will be held on Monday, May 4, 7:30-8:30 p.m.

Transcripts of all discussions will also be available at
Much thanks to Guy Dobson, Internet Services Librarian at the Bergen County (NJ) Cooperative Library System, for moderating and generally assisting with the online discussions.
