10 Books Every Musician/Filmmaker/Writer [pick one or more] Should Read

10 booksJoin Sue Greenberg, Executive Director of Volunteer Lawyers & Accountants for the Arts (VLAA), when she visits Central Library not once, not twice, but THREE times to pitch books to various sectors of the local artist community in St. Louis Public Library’s spring series: “10 Books Every Artist Should Read.” The series kicks off on February 2 with a focus on MUSICIANS, in March we will highlight books of interest to FILMMAKERS, and in April we will conclude the series by discussing books for WRITERS. (See below for a sneak preview of a few of Sue's picks for musicians, plus a couple of bonus suggestions from the librarians.)

In addition to Sue’s book recommendations, Honna Veerkamp will demonstrate the resources available in Creative Experience, SLPL Central’s “digital maker space” - including a recording room and fully-equipped hi-tech computer pods for collaborative creation and editing - and Lisa Thorp will give an overview of the information available through Foundation Center’s Grants to Individuals Online database, a research tool that can help identify potential funders for arts and cultural projects.

Our line-up (updated with links to lists, in case you missed any of the programs):

All sessions held from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. in Creative Experience on the 1st floor of Central Library (1301 Olive Street).

So if you are a musician, a filmmaker, and/or a writer, come listen to what we have to say, maybe check out a book, and meet some of your fellow creatives!

Call Lisa at 314 539-0357 or Honna at 314 880-2593 with any questions.
