A talk on the history of Buffalo’s Little Harlem Hotel, a nightclub at 496 Michigan Ave. established to showcase aspiring stars, will be offered at noon Monday in the Central Library.

Alison Fraser, a University at Buffalo doctoral candidate, will discuss her research based on the collection of rare holdings housed in the Central Library’s Grosvenor Room.

The event, which is free, will be held on the main floor in the Ring of Knowledge.
