Music will be a topic for conversation — and listening — at the Peabody Institute Library’s “American Music” film and discussion series. The first of six events is slated for 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 18. Boston University professor John Wallace will lead the program, which revolves around the theme of blues and gospel music, two sounds with an outsized influence on American music, said librarian Kelley Rae Unger.

Documentary films by people like Martin Scorcese help make the point.

Each week features a different sound. The library’s upcoming concert series will reflect some of the topics of “America’s Music.”

The Peabody library is one of only 81 across the country to win sponsorship for this program, which is financed by the American Library Association, Tribeca Film Institute, Society for American Music and the National Endowment for the Humanities. More information is at, or 978-531-0100, ext. 10.
