The audio for Episode 61 was recorded live at the 2017 Charleston Conference as part of our Penthouse Suite interviews. Loretta Parham, CEO & Library Director of Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library, is interviewed by Tom Gilson of Against the Grain and Glenda Alvin of Tennessee State University. Ms. Parham was also a keynote speaker for the conference, and her presentation can be viewed at https://youtu.be/F-0nqy44KIo.
Each year, ATG is pleased to release a series of video interviews titled “Views from the Penthouse Suite.” These interviews occur at the Charleston Library Conference, and it has become something that we look forward to every year. Select speakers and attendees are invited to the Penthouse Suite on the 12th floor of the Francis Marion Hotel in historic downtown Charleston, SC, to discuss wide-ranging topics and issues of importance to the publishing and library world. Videos of these interviews are available on the Charleston Conference YouTube channel and on the Conference website video page. Links are provided below. Thanks for listening!
