Discussion of "The Library Book" with Terry Bibo Knight

Discussion of The Library Book with Terry Bibo Knight - North Branch

The Library Book, by award-winning New Yorker reporter and New York Times bestselling author Susan Orlean, tells the story of the 1986 Los Angeles Central Library fire, in which nearly a million books were damaged or destroyed. The cause of the fire remains a mystery even today; while investigators suspected arson, no suspect was ever charged. As Orlean chronicles the investigation in her book, she manages to tell the broader story of libraries and librarians in a way that has never been done before.  Discussion leader Terry Bibo Knight is a long-time columnist/reporter for the Journal Star.  She is currently a freelance journalist and an avid reader and book club member.
