“Everybody who loves books should read this book,” says The Washington Post of New Yorker reporter and New York Times-bestselling author Susan Orlean’s latest work. Fest supporters won’t want to miss this interview, then, with Orlean and author and journalist Carol Shaben, fittingly in one of our very own sacred spaces, the downtown VPL. They’ll explore the different facets of The Library Book—from homage paid to the beloved institution that set Orlean on her path to becoming a writer, to the investigation into a disastrous 1986 fire that destroyed the Los Angeles Public Library, and the crucial role libraries play in our society.
Presented by the Vancouver Writers Fest with support from the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association.
