Author Susan Orlean will kick off the national tour for her highly anticipated new book, The Library Book, at Central Library with a presentation and book signing. David Ulin, former book critic of the Los Angeles Times, will join Susan in conversation on stage in the Taper Auditorium. The Library Book reopens the unsolved mystery of the 1986 fire at Los Angeles Public Library’s Central Library—the most catastrophic library fire in American history—and delivers a dazzling love letter to libraries as an institution.
