On the Road Virtually

We’ve taken a selection of our programs “on the road — virtually,” as videocasts and podcasts that you can watch or listen to whenever it’s convenient for you. Select your “road trip” below and get started!
  • An Afternoon with Tony Curtis – the film legend talks about his book, The Making of Some Like it Hot.
  • Amelia’s Long Journey: The Challenge of Writing What You Know. In Amelia’s Long Journey, John L. Smith tells of the joys of becoming a parent and raising a beautiful little girl, and the terror of almost losing her. With the skill of a journalist and the heart of a father, Smith lovingly chronicles Amelia’s life: her early carefree years, the diagnosis of a cancerous brain tumor, the surgeries, the treatments, the remissions, the relapse, the recovery, as well as the courage, humor, and optimism she showed throughout. Amelia’s Long Journey is not only a story about a brave girl’s fight against cancer, but a story about a precious little girl’s love for life.
  • Michael Uslan – the producer of the Batman movies talks about his early life and its influence on his work in this interview conducted during the 2009 Vegas Valley Comic Book Festival.
  • Library House Rock – a sampling of a music/dance groups performing at the library.
