Adam Silvera, author of YA book More Happy Than Not, gave an inspirational talk and Q&A in the Bronx. http://on.nypl.org/1R1TUMb
A few teens asked about his writing as well as his literary influences. From his writing process to his tattoos, the questions varied greatly, and they allowed for the teens to get to know Adam better.

Dalkey has continually expanded the much needed world of quality translations for works that yearn for the proper attention. http://on.nypl.org/1Onqx4s
In continuation of the Three (or more) Series: Dalkey Archive's specialty lies within curating and bringing forth names in literature that are often left out of the conversation. Many of these titles fall under avant garde, while others are titles that have been forgotten about, or never translated for the English speaking world.
