Virtual Book Club: "The Library Book" by Susan Orlean

Adults

Join our Marathon City Branch staff and other fans of the written word during their monthly, virtual discussions of a variety of literature!

Orlean's bestselling nonfiction book chronicles the fire that destroyed the Los Angeles Public Library and its aftermath to showcase the larger, crucial role that libraries play in our lives. The book also delves into the evolution of libraries across the country and around the world and reexamines the case of Harry Peak, the blond-haired actor long suspected of setting fire to the LAPL more than thirty years ago.

This virtual discussion is open to the public, and new people are always welcome! Call the Marathon City Branch for more information on how to participate online or via telephone.
