      The Library Book by Susan Orleans

      On the morning of April 29, 1986, a fire alarm sounded in the Los Angeles Public Library. By the time the fire was extinguished, it had consumed 400,000 books and damaged 700,000 more. But more than 30 years later, the mystery remains: Did someone purposefully set fire to the library - and if so, who? Orleans also traces the history of libraries in the United States, and the often quirky individuals who were the predecessors of today’s professional librarians.

      Moderated by Jeanmarie Kantor
