The UB Libraries, Undergraduate Academies, and UB Office of Sustainability are pleased to announce a book talk with local author Tom Rivers. Tom, a Batavia (NY) newspaper reporter, will join us in University Libraries Special Collections, 420 Capen Hall, from 5 p.m. – 6 p.m. on Wednesday, September 18, 2013 to discuss his book, Farm Hands.
Farm Hands is a chronicle of Tom’s experiences and observations working migrant worker farm jobs. The book was selected for UB’s 48 Good Books project. In addition to the talk, copies of Farm Hands will be available for purchase at the UB Sustainable Living Fair being held on the same day from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the Student Union. Tom will be signing copies of the book at the fair from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.
