Library Live with Susan Orlean **FULL**

The Newport Beach Public Library Foundation presents Library Live with Susan Orlean, author of "The Library Book."

In April 1986, The Los Angeles Public Library caught fire. It was the biggest library fire in American history and most people didn’t even know the blaze occurred, with the news of the library’s losses eclipsed by the Chernobyl nuclear plant meltdown. Orlean is one of our finest storytellers and her account has been called “a true love letter to one of our most prized institutions.” "The Library Book" is a reminder of the importance of libraries, spotlighting the vital role they continue to play in our culture.
