Description

Join us for an evening with acclaimed bestselling nonfiction author Susan Orlean, as she discusses her new book with Issac Pulver, director of the Saratoga Springs Public Library.

In "The Library Book," Susan Orlean, hailed as a “national treasure” by The Washington Post and the acclaimed bestselling author of "Rin Tin Tin" and "The Orchid Thief," reopens the unsolved mystery of the most catastrophic library fire in American history, and delivers a dazzling love letter to a beloved institution—our libraries.

On the morning of April 29, 1986, a fire alarm sounded in the Los Angeles Public Library. As the moments passed, the patrons and staff who had been cleared out of the building realized this was not the usual false alarm. As one fireman recounted later, “Once that first stack got going, it was Goodbye, Charlie.”
