IMLS Director Hosts Free Webinar Conversations With Industry Leaders

IMLS is rolling out a free event series hosted by Crosby Kemper, its director. The press release states, “Drawing inspiration from a variety of modern media and historical concepts, including Franklin D. Roosevelt’s famous fireside chats, … Director Kemper will host discussions engaging special guests from the museum, library, academic, journalism, and political worlds.”

The series will kick off on March 5 with “Conversations with Crosby: Churchill Today,” featuring Andrew Roberts and Timothy Riley from America’s National Churchill Museum. Each event will be available via GoToWebinar (registration required) and then uploaded to the IMLS YouTube channel.

“These conversations are designed to highlight the importance of the arts and humanities for our museums and libraries in their central place in the civic and community life of the nation and the growth and self-development of each of us individually,” says Kemper. “I hope that these encounters with some of the most thoughtful people in our world will provide guidance for IMLS, as well as enlightenment for all. We want to explore with them the shared heritage, shared experience, and shared ideas that can bring us together with libraries and museums—not always in agreement, but always with purpose and goodwill.”

For more information, read the press release.
