Alexander Holiday will read from his book, "In the Care of Strangers: The Autobiography of a Foster Child" on Wednesday, Dec. 8, at 6 p.m. at the Delaware Branch (331 Delaware Avenue). Holiday was born in New York City and raised in foster care. He later earned bachelor's and master's degrees from the University at Albany. Times Union writer Paul Grondahl will read from "The Story of Albany" on Tuesday, Dec. 14, at 1:30 p.m. at the Main Library. The book features a number of Albany remembrances penned by Albany residents, workers, and supporters. Paul will read from the book, which was produced by the Times Union last year and sponsored by APL.
