FANWOOD, NJ -- Alan Sepinwall, named the “King of Television Criticism” by Slate, will appear on Wednesday, May 10, at 7:00 p.m. at the Fanwood Memorial Library.

According to the online magazine, Sepinwall pioneered the post-episode analysis back when The Sopranos rose to cultural prominence. After a 14-year stretch at the NJ Star-Ledger, he blogged for HitFix and now writes for Uproxx, reviewing 10 to 15 shows a week.

Sepinwall manages just enough air between his strong emotions and the drama unfolding on his screen to analyze it. More often than not, his morning-after analysis ends up as impassioned cheer rather than diagnostic exam.

The writer appears as the guest speaker at the Friends of the Fanwood Library annual meeting. The public is invited to this free event.
