Bibliophiles rejoice! On February 6th, three very different authors will discuss their equally different lives and new books in two Jamaica locations. Staring at 6 pm, Bill Cosby, the comedian, actor and activist, will share a panel with Frank Savage, a businessman and competitive sailor, as part of Black History Month celebrations at York College organized in conjunction with the Greater Queens Chapter of The Links. The Coz’s I Didn’t Ask to Be Born (But I’m Glad I Was) is a collection of his observations and wacky insights into life. Meanwhile, Savage tells the story of his rise from childhood poverty to the corporate world and yacht racing in his autobiography The Savage Way. At 6:30 pm, Sam Roberts, an urban affairs correspondent with The New York Times, will talk about his latest tome, Only in New York: An Exploration of the World’s Most Fascinating, Frustrating and Irrepressible City, at Queens Central Library.
