Esteemed author, journalist, & New Yorker staff writer Susan Orlean will talk about her NYT bestseller, The Library Book, Saturday, October 19, 2:00 pm at Wilmette Junior High School, 620 Locust Road.

In The Library Book, Ms. Orlean weaves her lifelong love of books and reading into an investigation of a devastating fire at the Los Angeles Public Library in 1986. Along the way, she delivers an enthralling book that tells a broader story of libraries while revealing how these beloved institutions remain an essential part of our nation’s heart, mind, and soul.

The event is free and open to the public, and tickets are not required. A book signing will follow, with copies of The Library Book available for purchase courtesy of The Book Stall.
