Virtual Author Talks


The library offers a number of online resources: from variety of full-text magazines, newspapers and journals and reference materials to support the education and research needs of local citizens. All resources are free, all that is needed is a PINES library card!

Listen to and interact with authors to learn the story behind the story. Dougherty County Public Library presents free, live streamed virtual author talks each month featuring bestselling, award-winning, and highly acclaimed authors from around the world.  The featured writers and thought leaders will cover a wide range of fiction and nonfiction genres including historical fiction, contemporary fiction, romance, OwnVoices, poetry, business, personal growth, social justice, history, art, culture, and more.

Each talk will be a live, one-hour interview with a bestselling author and a professional moderator. Questions will be a mixture of those prepared by the moderator and those submitted by participants during the event. The events will be completely virtual so people can watch the talks wherever it is convenient for them. All events are closed captioned, and will be available for on-demand access at the author's discretion.

A complete list of events and registration information is available on Union Public Library’s virtual author talk series website at
