Author Talk with Larry I. Palmer

Tuesday, October 13, 2020

We are excited to be hosting an author talk with Larry Palmer, author of Scholarship Boy: Meditations on Family and Race, on Tuesday, October 13 at 6:30pm on zoom. You know that feeling you get when relaxing on a porch, nowhere to go, just listening someone tell their stories? That’s the feeling Scholarship Boy evokes, and that’s just what you can expect when you join us for this event. Mr. Palmer’s life is extraordinary, which you can’t miss, and yet, his work reflects who he is – someone completely devoid of pretense. Come join us to hear about many stories as the author discusses years before and after Exeter, including his childhood relationships with his siblings all the way through his time at Harvard and up to Yale Law. Library Director will interview Mr. Palmer but we hope you’ll bring your own questions as well. The first ten registrants will receive a free copy of the book. Reserve the book on our catalog site:
