[ARCHIVED] Malibu Library Speaker Series with Bestselling Author Susan Orlean

Speaker Series Susan Orlean

The Malibu Library Speaker Series presents New York Times bestselling author Susan Orlean discussing her latest book “The Library Book" and talking about the value of libraries in our society. 

Tuesday, April 23, 7:00 PM 

Malibu City Hall, Civic Theater (23825 Stuart Ranch Rd., Malibu CA 90265)
Free with RSVP. Please RSVP online or call the Malibu Library at 310-456-6438

Susan Orlean has been called “a national treasure” by The Washington Post. Her deeply moving explorations of American stories both familiar and obscure have earned her a reputation as one of America’s most distinctive journalistic voices. A staff writer for The New Yorker for over twenty years and a former contributing editor at Rolling Stone and Vogue, she has been praised as “an exceptional essayist” (Publishers Weekly) and a writer who “approaches her subjects with intense curiosity and fairness.”

The author will be signing copies of her latest work “The Library Book,” which will be available for purchase at the event. “The Library Book” is a New York Times bestseller that explores the history, power, and future of these endangered institutions. “The story is told through the lens of Orlean’s quest to solve a notorious cold case of the Los Angeles Public Library fire which destroyed 400,000 books in 1986."
