will be discussing (via Zoom)

“The Library Book”

by Susan Orlean

Wednesday, January 11, 2023

This book chronicles the 1986 Los Angeles Public Library fire – which consumed over 400k books and damaged 700k more.  A bestseller, and a New York Times Notable Book, it reflects upon the events, the investigation, and more broadly, the importance of libraries to our culture, our historical narratives, and our communities.

Please consider formulating a question or observation that you would like the group to discuss and bring it to the meeting!
