The New Orleans Public Library has partnered with the New Orleans Video Access Center to provide a very interesting Screenwriting Series. The series is a rotating collection of 11/2-hour screenwriting seminars designed to cover an aspect of the craft.

The workshops cater to both the novice screenwriter as well as the film enthusiast. The next program in the series is called Table Read: Ephron, Chaefsky, Schrader, and will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7, at the Main Library, 219 Loyola Ave.

AUTHOR NIGHT AT HUBBELL: The monthly Author Night at the Cita Dennis Hubbell Library in Algiers Point, 725 Pelican Ave., always guarantees a good time, and this month’s event is going to be extra delicious. Author Ann Benoit will be discussing and signing her new book “New Orleans’ Best Ethnic Restaurants” at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 12.

The new book is a fun-filled culinary tour of New Orleans’ top 100 ethnic restaurants from Eastern European pop-ups to Brazilian churras and includes native stories, recipes and some beautiful food photography.

Benoit is a commercial food photographer and a culinary writer native to New Orleans. Snacks and refreshments will be served and books will be available for sale.

Charles Brown is the executive director of the New Orleans Public Library. For more information, visit neworleanspubliclibrary.org.
