A Reading & Conversation with Benjamin Taylor – Newark Public Library

A Reading & Conversation with Benjamin Taylor

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020 | 4-5 PM
Join us for A Reading and Conservation with Benjamin Taylor. Taylor will discuss his new memoir Here We Are: My Friendship with Philip Roth.

Benjamin Taylor’s memoir is a deeply felt, beautifully crafted meditation on friendship and loss, and a touching portrait of Philip Roth from one of his closest friends.

The Newark Public Library is fundraising for the creation of the Philip Roth Personal Library. Home to Roth's personal collection, the Library will be a dynamic space for visitors to experience exhibits, discussions and workshops that emulate Roth’s thought-provoking and sometimes controversial perspective. Philip Roth often recounted how the Newark Library positively impacted his life, and we are honored to be the beneficiary of his generous bequest. Your support is especially meaningful in helping us to preserve and advance Roth’s profound legacy as one of America’s greatest fiction writers. Please donate today to help keep Philip Roth’s Newark story alive.
