Help Author Philip Roth Raise Funds to Save Library

In honor of an amazing high school teacher, Dr. Bob Lowenstein, bestselling author Philip Roth is donating his time and work to save the Newark Public Library. His is the audio voice on “In Memory of a Friend, Teacher and Mentor”.  The reading is the eulogy for Dr. Lowenstein who not only was a teacher, but became a mentor and lifelong friend of Roth’s.

For each download of this audio book, Audible will donate $1 to the Newark Public Library, up to $25,000. The download of the reading is free and can be found by following this link

In an interview with the Paris Review, Roth said: The library was very important to me as a kid. The main Newark Public Library was downtown, and I went to a branch library where I lived, about a mile away. I went often, when I got to be eleven, twelve, thirteen. Then, my first year of college, I went to college there in Newark—Newark-Rutgers, now—and the college didn’t have a library, so the Newark Public Library was our library. I’m very attached to it. And I don’t want it to go under. Not that $25,000 will save it, but it can’t hurt.”
