From Meet the Author events to tours of our Special Collections, we have something for everyone at nearly always no cost.
Meet the Author
Pequot Library’s ongoing Meet the Author series provides an opportunity for writers and readers to meet, talk, listen, and learn with each other. Authors of both fiction and nonfiction have come to Pequot to give engaging lectures about their newest works in the Library’s historic Auditorium. Many Meet the Author events have focused on American history and politics but other topics have ranged from famous athletes to crime thrillers to food and more.
After the author’s talk the floor is opened to questions where fruitful dialogues between the speaker and audience can begin. Once the question and answer section has concluded, Meet the Author events typically migrate into the Library’s cozy reading room where visitors have the opportunity to speak to the author and purchase a copy of their book.
Meet the Author continues during these times of Covid. Pequot Library hosts author talks over Zoom where up to 100 patrons can attend from anywhere in the world.
