The Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library is excited to announce the launch of “Rose Library Presents”; a new suite of podcasts created by Lolita Rowe, Nick Twemlow, and Randy Gue.
Three series are set to premiere during American Archives Month: Rose Library Presents: Community Conversations, Rose Library Presents: Behind the Archives, and Rose Library Presents: Atlanta Intersections. See below for more detailed information on each podcast. For the inaugural episode of RLP: Community Conversations, Archivist Gabrielle Dudley interviewed poet and activist Nikki Giovanni; their conversation will launch the series on October 14th, followed by the first episode of RLP: Behind the Archives, featuring an interview with Rose Library Accessing Archivist Meaghan O’Riordan and Accessioning Archivist Rosemary Davis of the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University releasing on October 21st, and finally the premiere of RLP: Atlanta Intersections on October 28th, featuring an interview with Atlanta music journalist Chad Radford.
The Community Conversations series will invite conversation about a historical person, event, or place. Rose Library staff will interview guests from outside the archives to have a conversation that connects their experiences with our collections. Audiences will learn from the insights of our guests and learn more about what we do and who we are as an organization and as a profession.
Host: Lolita Rowe
The Behind the Archive series will feature informal conversations about archives: What are archives and who are the people that make archives work? Audiences will learn from the insights of our guests and learn more about what we do and who we are as an organization and as a profession. In no specific order, the following are topics we plan to discuss: Curation, Preservation, Processing, Digitization, Reference, Instruction, Rare Books, Outreach, and Acquisitions.
Host: Lolita Rowe
Atlanta Intersections explores how lives and places are bound together. The series brings activists, artists, authors, journalists, musicians, photographers, scholars, and urbanists together to discuss their lives, their work, and their experiences of the city and how it all converges.

Each series will drop on a Wednesday, one episode per series per month from October 2020 until May 2021.
