NEW YORK (AP) - Don’t make them whisper: Keith Richards and Jay-Z each will give talks this fall at the New York Public Library.

The Rolling Stones guitarist will speak Oct. 29 at the Celeste Bartos auditorium at the library’s main branch on 5th Avenue as part of the promotion for his memoir "Life." Jay-Z will discuss his memoir "Decoded" on Nov. 15.

The library has hosted musicians before, including members of the Velvet Underground and David Byrne of Talking Heads.

Other upcoming guests announced Wednesday will likely attract a more bookish crowd: Nobel laureate Toni Morrison, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet W.S. Merwin and Israeli novelist David Grossman.
