In this special edition of our podcast This is the Author, we’re celebrating Library Card Sign-up Month by asking authors to share with us some of their favorite library memories. From childhood libraries to trips to libraries with their children, each of these authors illustrate what we know: not only are libraries a place where you have stories and information at your fingertips, but they are also places of comfort, refuge, and joy.
Listen to authors Mark and Jay Duplass, Jan Chozen Bays, Stephanie Rosenbloom, Aaron Mahnke, Claudia Renton, Nick Pyenson, and Richard Russo share why libraries are so special to them.
Make sure you have these library-loving authors’ audiobooks in your collection!
“So conversational is the general tone of this reading that listeners will feel they’re with old friends, or chatting over diner coffee with the Duplass brothers themselves…An audio essential for pop-culture and film-studies collections.” —Booklist
“The author contemplates the importance of alone time for creative activities and pursuing knowledge…Appealing for travelers who are considering solo trips, or those who already enjoy adventures on their own.” —Library Journal
