|Summary, etc.:||"On April 29, 1986, the most catastrophic library fire in American history occurred at the Los Angeles Central Library. Burning for more than seven hours, it consumed 400,000 books and damaged another 700,000. More than thirty years later, how it started remains a mystery. Award-winning journalist Susan Orlean investigates the legendary fire and showcases the crucial role that libraries play in our lives. She introduces an engaging cast of employees and patrons, delves into the evolution of libraries, reflects upon her childhood experiences in libraries, and scrutinizes the man long suspected of setting the fire."--|
