POSTPONED: “Hello, Bookstore”
Sunday April 23 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
This event has been postponed. We don’t yet have a new date. We will post it when we do.
On April 23 at 3:00pm, the North Chatham Free Library will present a program dedicated to independent bookstores, those cozy nooks that are surviving the onslaught of big box and online behemoths. Filmmaker and writer Adam Zax will show clips for discussion from his award-winning documentary, “Hello Bookstore,” about The Bookstore in Lenox and the spirit of “indies” everywhere.
To register, please email [email protected].
Anyone interested attending and who has not already seen the film “Hello Bookstore” may view the film prior to Adam Zax’s talk on Kanopy (free as a NCFL patron).
Mr. Zax is fascinated by the dialogue between people and landscape –– the places we can feel. He produced this documentary about The Bookstore in Lenox Massachusetts, working with owner Matt Tannenbaum to celebrate the spirit and illustrate the inside workings of this type of shop and how it becomes part of the community. The Bookstore remained available to the community throughout the Covid pandemic. We are lucky to have our own, The Chatham Book Store, created in 1977 by Susannah Marks and still going strong.
After Adam Zax’s talk, there will be a discussion period. Matt Tannenbaum will be there with Adam Zax to answer your questions and give you some ideas about what’s coming for spring reading.
Like all library programs, this one is free and open to the public. Do not attend if you are feeling sick. Masks are optional but encouraged.
This event is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrants Program, a program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature and administered in Columbia County by the Columbia County Council on the Arts dba CREATE Council for the Arts.
