Eastern Monroe Public Library
Welcome! You have found the BookHouse, home of the Eastern Monroe Public Library's series of cultural programs. Programs generally take place on the fourth Friday of each month, except for August and December. Admission is free, and refreshments are available for a modest charge.

Doors will open at 7 p.m. the night of each event, and the performance will begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first served basis. Please plan to arrive before the scheduled starting time. All BookHouse programs are free and open to the public. The BookHouse program takes place in the Edinger Community Room of Eastern Monroe Public Library, located at 1002 North 9th Street (Rt. 611 and Chipperfield Drive) in Stroudsburg. For more information call (570) 421-0800, x312.

Some of the artists Lamar has worked with include: Johnny Bristol, Garland Green, Chuck Jackson, Nancy Wilson, Maynard Ferguson, and Johnnie Taylor. Lamar and his wife, Judy Thomas were also songwriters on the Grammy Nominated Album, “Gotta Get the Groove Back” by the late Johnnie Taylor.
In addition to songwriting, Lamar is the author of numerous books including “DA Delta Black Music & ME”. This 400 plus page book contains the 1 hour original documentary, “Take Me Home 2 DA Delta”. This film (much like the book), was written, and produced by Lamar and Judy Thomas and talks about many of the founding fathers of the Blues, soul, Rhythm and Blues, and yes Rock ‘n’ Roll.
