This July, the Albany Public Library Foundation is hosting an outdoor reading series of author Frankie Bailey's detective novel, The Red Queen Dies. The readings will occur in locations where scenes in the book took place, such as near Normanskill, at the Empire State Concourse, and Washington Park. We are looking for volunteers to read excerpts from the book. Volunteers can sign up to read for 10, 20, or 30 minutes.

The reading schedule is as follows:

Thursdays in July, 5:30 to 8:00pm

  • July 5: Next to the Normanskill (Near the Dog Park)
  • July 12: Empire State Plaza Concourse (South Concourse)
  • July 19: Washington Park (Near the Soldiers and Sailors Monument)
  • July 26: Normanskill Farm (At the Tenants House)

2 volunteers will read on each day. If you are interested please email with your name, your phone number, how long you'd like to read, and what date you'd like to read on.

This is a great opportunity to take part in local literature, and the readings will be a treat to both those who have read and enjoyed Bailey's work and those new to her writing.
