Susan Orlean | The Library Book

Susan Orlean | The Library Book

A staff writer for the New Yorker since 1992, Susan Orlean won wide acclaim for the 1998 New York Times bestseller The Orchid Thief, the story of a renegade Florida swamp plant poacher that was adapted into an Academy Award–winning film by Charlie Kaufman and Spike Jonze. Her many other books include AnimalishSaturday Night, and Rin Tin Tin, a nonfiction account of the beloved canine American icon. Orlean’s latest book details the 1986 Los Angeles Public Library fire that consumed hundreds of thousands of books, a story writ small about the larger role this unique institution plays in American life.
