Listen to Rebecca Solnit, Sarah Urist Green, Samantha Irby, Erin Lee Carr, Deepak Chopra, Janice Kaplan, Wendelin Van Draanen, Carolina de Robertis, and David Levithan highlight the wonderful opportunities that both libraries and librarians provide to the individual and the community as a whole.
In this second installment of our #NationalLibraryWeek special on This is the Author, we asked some of our authors to share some of their fondest library memories. Listen to Glennon Doyle, John Von Sothen, Lee Hartley Carter, Emilie Pine, Ali Wong, Richard Russo, Terry McMillan, and Pablo Cartaya as they share anecdotes about their experiences as children within the library space, as well as stories about how they are creating memories with their own children in the library.
