2011 was my last year with the Library. This book is a series of photographs of celebrities and the more favored staff with their favorite object from the Research Libraries' collections, and their thoughts on why they like that particular object. Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, Sarah Vowell, Tom Stoppard, Zadie Smith and such people -- and, ahem, Jessica Pigza. It's free, even on Amazon.

This was a surprisingly inspirational book! Libraries are among the holiest objects made by man, and the NY Public Library is a cathedral amongst these churches. It was a treat having some first order people find some of the vast treasures in the NY Public Library and tell us of them, their value to them, and what should be their value to us, on the Centennial Anniversary of this magnificent institution.

Well done!

This is available as an eBook from Amazon on Kindle. The very best $0.00 I've ever spent. Period.… (lisätietoja)
