Authors and Artists present Amy Bass on Feb. 22 at the Chatham Public Library

Amy Bass

CHATHAM — Emmy-award-winning writer Amy Bass will appear at 1 p.m. Feb. 22 at the Chatham Public Library, 11 Woodbridge Ave., Chatham, to give a talk on two of her books, including Those About Him Remained Silent: The Battle over W.E.B. Du Bois, which provides the first detailed account of the battle over Du Bois and his legacy, as well as a history of Du Bois’s early life in Great Barrington, Mass.

Bass locates the roots of the hostility to memorialize Du Bois in a cold war worldview that reduced complicated politics to a vehement hatred of both communism and, more broadly, anti-Americanism.

The Authors and Artists speakers series is sponsored by the Friends of the Chatham Public Library and features a wide variety of fascinating speakers.

This free event is open to the public and will be followed by a question and answer session and book sale.

For information, call the library at 518-392-3666.
