Description:

The Maywood Library Book Club meets on the third Friday of the month.

The next book we're reading is The Library Book by Susan Orlean.

 

he library's burnt down! No, no not Maywood. The Los Angeles Public Library! On the morning of April 29, 1986, the stacks caught fire in the LAPL. The inferno reached 2000 degrees and burned for more than seven hours. By the time it was extinguished, the flames had consumed four hundred thousand books and damaged seven hundred thousand more. More than thirty years laters, the mystery still remains: Did someone purposefully set fire to the library- and if so, who?

  Weaving her lifelong love of books and reading into an investigation of the fire, New Yorker reporter Susan Orlean delivers a mesmerizing and uniquely compelling book that manages to tell the broader story of libraries and librarians in a way that has never been done before. Brimming with her signature wit, insight, compassion, and talent for deep research, The Library Book is Susan Orlean's thrilling journey through the stacks that reveals how these beloved institutions provide much more than just books- and why they remain an essential part of the heart, mind, and soul of our country.

  Join us on April 19th at 11:30AM to discuss how this book serves as a reminder that, perhaps especially in the digital era, libraries are more necessary than ever.
