Three days in October will feature three very different speakers at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis.

On Thursday, Oct. 18, from 7 to 9 p.m., Maceo Montoya, artist, UC Davis professor and local author of “The Scoundrel and the Optimist,” will speak as part of the Writers on Writing Series. Montoya graduated from Yale University in 2002 and received a master’s degree in visual arts from Columbia University in 2006. He will talk on writing creative fiction.

On Friday, Oct. 19, 7 to 9 p.m., Christopher Phillips will speak about his bestselling book, “Constitution Café: Jefferson’s Brew for a True Revolution,” and will encourage discussion around sculpting the United States Constitution if one could start from scratch.

Book sales and signings will follow both speakers.

On Sunday, Oct. 28, 2 to 4 p.m., the Davis Read and Book Talk will feature Leslie T. Chang’s “Factory Girls: From Village to City in Changing China.” The event will start with an introduction by Bay Area China expert Jiang Lin, a demographer and consultant on Chinese urban and energy policy. Participants will be able to join a discussion of the book, exploring both the global and local effects of China’s powerful industrial transformations.

“We are pleased to offer this opportunity for interaction with writers, with the assistance of our local partners,” said Yolo County Librarian Patty Wong.

No reservations are required for these speaker events. All programs are free and held in the Blanchard Room of the Stephens Branch Library, which is accessible for persons with disabilities. Support for these programs is generously provided by the Friends of the Davis Public Library, Yolo County ACLU, the Davis Enterprise and the Avid Reader.
