New York Times bestselling author Susan Orlean has been called “a national treasure” by the Washington Post. Her latest work, the instant bestseller The Library Book, explores the history, power, and future of these endangered institutions. The Library Book is told through the lens of Orlean’s quest to solve a notorious cold case: who set fire to the Los Angeles Public Library in 1986?
A book signing will follow the talk.
This event is free and open to the public.
Sponsored in part by the Jantz Memorial Lecture, the Office of the President, and the Friends of the Oberlin College Libraries.
