Living Library

Living LibraryInstead of reading a book, why not let a book read to you? A living library is where real people are the books, and you are their audience! In this relaxed setting, you can interact with your book by having an immersive conversation and asking them questions. Each of our books are local residents of the North Country, that have hours of anecdotes and vast knowledge about their own topics. 

Below is a confirmed list of the available books: 

Barb Heller: Barb is the host of String Fever on North Country Public Radio (NCPR), which features bluegrass and acoustic music. She will be discussing her passion and experience working with music and her time working at NCPR. 

Joe Liotta: Joe is the music presenter, organizer, and founder of the Norwood Village Green Concert Series. He will be discussing his experience developing the concert series, along with his passion for music and discovering talented musicians. 

Frank Palumbo: Frank is a former teacher in Gouverneur, New York who had a long-distance friendship with world renowned author, Ray Bradbury. Frank has collections of signed books and letters from Mr. Bradbury, and will be discussing their correspondence. 

Bryan Thompson: Bryan is the town historian of DeKalb, New York and is the owner and operator of Blue Heron Farm. He will be discussing the appearance and history of the Klu Klux Klan (KKK) in St. Lawrence County.
