In this bonus edition of the Radio Bookclub, best selling author Susan Orlean joins us to talk about her latest novel the Library Book, a look at the fire of 1986 that destroyed the Los Angeles public library. Through telling this story she explores the role of libraries in society.

The Radio Bookclub is a collaboration between KGNU and the Boulder Bookstore. Every month, Arsen Kashkashian, head buyer at the Boulder Bookstore, selects a book to inspire listeners to read along together. The author will then join us in-studio for a discussion that airs the fourth Thursday of every month at 9am.
