The End of the PIAs: 2019


Thank You Platinum PIAs for an amazing 10 Years and thanks to all the incredible people of the PIAs community who made such a difference.

We laughed. We cried. We mostly laughed.

And we greatly miss a terrific friend to the PIAs who passed shortly after the final year of the show. We still can’t believe that he is really gone and we think about him often, and all the great memories we had with him.

Rodger Taylor

Rodger Taylor was an author (“Einstein on Race and Racism”) as well as was the Teen Central librarian of the Grand Central branch of the New York Public Library where Lights Camera Read, the Platinum PIAs and DigiComArts were involved to work with Rodger who impacted the lives of many young people, inspiring them to write and express themselves and most importantly, to be heard.
