Albany Book Festival: One week down, one to go!
Updates on Week Two of the Albany Book Festival
Hundreds of book lovers have viewed online videos of author events posted on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/NYSWritersInstitute
We posted the video from the popular "So You're Young and Want to Write" workshop
Saturday's three workshops on memoir, publishing, and writing are filled to capacity.
Nearly 100 "virtual attendees" have added their names to our email list in the past five days. (Welcome!)
Coming up Monday
In their new book Climate Crisis and the Global Green New Deal, The Political Economy of Saving the Planet, Noam Chomsky and Robert Pollin map out the catastrophic consequences of unchecked climate change — and present a realistic blueprint for change: the Green New Deal.
“This book is a survival manual for civilization. I want everyone—yes, every person on the planet—to learn its message and to face the challenge it poses: ‘What am I doing to help bring about a global Green New Deal in the early years of this decade?’” — Daniel Ellsberg, author of The Doomsday Machine
