These and other thought-provoking themes are addressed in the free-spirited works and presentations of authors and artists featured in Buffalo State College's Annual Sociology Speaker Series, April 21 - 28, Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, 341 Delaware Avenue. The series is free and open to all.
This year's week-long event pays tribute to Talking Leaves, Western New York's oldest independent bookstore, and its legacy of promoting literacy and public discussion. Befitting this theme, the series opens with a screening of "Indies Under Fire," a documentary by noted filmmaker, Jacob Bricca, about three independent bookstores fighting for survival. A panel discussion with Bricca and Jonathon Welch of Talking Leaves follows. Throughout the week, 15 noted authors and artists from the U.S. and abroad are featured.
