Guest Blogger: Chris Kretz, Dowling College Library, LILRC Annual Conference Committee Chair
I like to imagine that when William K. Vanderbilt was still in residence at Idle Hour, he would often end an evening of fine dining by retiring to the drawing room with friends for brandy, cigars, and a lively discussion on current topics (“Eight hour work day? Rubbish!”). That tradition continues this fall (minus the brandy and cigars) when Joe Raiola presents, “The Joy of Censorship” as our after-dinner speaker at the LILRC Annual Conference on Libraries and the Future at Dowling College.
Joe is a writer, producer and Senior Editor at MAD Magazine. His talk “is an outspoken, informative, entertaining and uncensored take on all things first amendment.” He will be speaking Thursday night, October 24th, and getting the conference off to a rousing start. (As an aside, remember that if you buy the two-day ticket but can’t make Thursday night, you can send a friend in your place.)
Here’s a 90-second intro from Joe and you can find out more about his work here: JoeRaiola.com.
Join us October 24-25th at Dowling College for Community by Design: Innovation & Transformation, LILRC’s 22nd Annual Conference on Libraries and the Future.
