Hudson Area Library Book Signing & Author Talk w/ ‘Big Black: Stand at Attica’ co-author, Jared Reinmuth, Sep 18


The Hudson Area Library  is hosting a Book Signing & Author Talk with Big Black: Stand at Attica co-author, Jared Reinmuth, on Saturday, September 18th at 12:30.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Attica Prison Rebellion of 1971, Jared Reinmuth will visit the Hudson Area Library to discuss Big Black: Stand at Attica, an Eisner nominated graphic novel memoir from Frank “Big Black” Smith, who was a prisoner at Attica State Prison in 1971.

In the summer of 1971, New York’s Attica State Prison is a symbol of everything broken in America – abused prisoners, rampant racism and a blind eye turned towards the injustices perpetrated on the powerless. But when the guards at Attica overreact to a minor incident, the prisoners decide they’ve had enough – and revolt against their jailers, taking them hostage and making demands for humane conditions. Frank “Big Black” Smith finds himself at the center of this uprising, struggling to protect hostages, prisoners and negotiators alike. But when the only avenue for justice seems to be negotiating with ambitious Governor Nelson Rockefeller, Big Black soon discovers there may be no hope in finding a peaceful resolution for the prisoners in Attica.

Written by Jared Reinmuth and Frank “Big Black” Smith himself, adapted and illustrated by Ameziane, Big Black: Stand At Attica is an unflinching look at the price of standing up to injustice in what remains one of the bloodiest civil rights confrontations in American history.

DATE/TIME: Saturday, September 18, 2021 / 12:30 – 2:30pm

COST/REGISTRATION: Free and open to the public.
Seating is limited. Reserve a seat by emailing programs@hudsonarealibrary.org or calling 518-828-1792 x101. Reserved seats will be held until 10 minutes before the event’s start time. At that time, the library will make available all remaining seats on a first come, first served basis.
