Festival of Writers

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

William Kennedy.
Andy Rooney.
Paul Grondahl.

Three of the most notable writers that Albany has produced.

As a benefit for the Rensselaerville Library, Rensselaerville is hosting a very special Festival of Writers at various locations around town from Friday, July 31-Sunday, August 2. Readings, films, picnics, book sales, literary discussions and much more will be taking place over the course of the three-day fest.

But the perhaps the main event will be taking place at the Rensselaerville Meeting Center at 4:30pm Saturday, August 1 – a 75-minute discussion between Kennedy and Rooney moderated by the Times Union’s Grondahl. Will they discuss the current dismal state of the newspaper business? A much-needed cocktail reception will follow at 6pm.
