Rapper, actor and author Common will appear at Wilmington Public Library Jan. 26 in a free event.

The multi-hyphenate entertainer Common will bring his book tour to the Wilmington Public Library Jan. 26 at 6 p.m.

He will talk about and sign his book, “And Then We Rise,” which details Common’s journey to wellness as a vital element of his success as a rapper, actor and now author.

Common rules

Seating at Common’s appearance is first come, first-served. No registration or tickets are required.
The library also will livestream the event.
Cameras are allowed, but if you do not have permission by the Wilmington Library director to move around, you must remain seated with your camera.
The libary asks that attendees do not stand on chairs, in the aisles or in the back of the room in an attempt to record or take photos. That obstructs the view of others, causes a fire hazard, and potentially blocks library cameras around the room that will be livestreaming the event.
Patrons who stands also prohibit guests, especially those in wheelchairs, from coming in and out to find a seat or to use the restroom.
All attendees must find a seat and are  not allowed to block entrances or exits. Staff members and/or volunteers will help you find a seat if you can not find one.
The library asks that patrons be kind and courteous to one another as well as library staff who work hard to bring you these events.
Common’s appearance is not part of the library’s Black History Month Speaker Series, but the library expects to announced that soon, a press release said.
