We began these interviews in an effort to let our patrons know about some of the new books by local authors that are being published. There are so many outstanding authors in the Amherst area, and those with new books are unable to promote them in the usual ways during the pandemic.
Like many of you, we have been acquiring new tech skills while working from home. With each interview, we improved our techniques; our authors were all enthusiastic and had interesting ideas to share. We invite you to listen live to upcoming interviews on our Facebook page where you can post questions for the author, and to enjoy the past interviews that are posted below.
Check back soon for more interviews!
