The bestselling author of The Orchid Thief and Rin Tin Tin, Susan Orlean has been described by The New York Times Book Review as “a kind of latter-day Tocqueville.” A staff writer at The New Yorker for more than 20 years, she has also written for Esquire, Rolling Stone and Vogue. Orlean’s latest book, The Library Book, is an exploration of the power of libraries told through her quest to solve a mysterious act of arson that nearly destroyed the Los Angeles Public Library in 1986. The Library Book was named one of The New York Times’ 100 Notable Books of 2018 and The Washington Post’s Best Books of 2018.
