The official word:

The (Main Event) author series featuring prominent voices from the worlds of literature, the arts, politics and journalism resumes with Ignatiy Vishnevetsky on May 9 at 7 p.m. at the Main Library Auditorium, 60 S. High St. in downtown Akron.

 Ignatiy Vishnevetsky (Ig-NOT-ee Vish-nev-ET-skee) is a film critic and essayist for Notebook, a digital magazine of international cinema and film culture published by His writing covers movies from the silent era to the Internet and everywhere in between.

Since 2011, Vishnevetsky has co-hosted the PBS program Ebert Presents: At the Movies with Christy Lemire. He also contributes film criticism to Cine-File and The Chicago Reader.

The evening’s program will be a multimedia presentation, as Ignatiy considers the mutable medium of cinema, and asks: “If narrative, sound, color, television, computers, and 3D haven’t managed to kill movies, what will?”

A question and answer session will follow the presentation, which is free and open to the public.

Presented by the Akron-Summit County Public Library and Friends of Main Library. Auditorium doors open at 6:30pm. Parking in the High/Market deck is free for those arriving after 6pm. Call 330-643-9035, or go to for more information.
