Who started the 1986 fire at the Los Angeles Public Library?

The Literary Guild is reading The Library Book by Susan Orlean for September. Jane Kamenski from the Wall Street Journal says, “Vivid . . . Compelling . . . Ms. Orlean interweaves a memoir of her life in books, a whodunit, a history of Los Angeles, and a meditation on the rise and fall and rise of civic life in the United States. . . . By turns taut and sinuous, intimate and epic, Ms. Orlean’s account evokes the rhythms of a life spent in libraries . . . bringing to life a place and an institution that represents the very best of America: capacious, chaotic, tolerant and even hopeful, with faith in mobility of every kind, even, or perhaps especially, in the face of adversity.”

New members are welcome to join. Please request a copy of the book at the front desk or call us for curbside service at 309-726-1103.
