Susan Orlean to Write about Infamous LAPL Fire

abstract fire on blackPut this on your must read list …

Susan Orlean, author of The Orchid Thief, which was adapted for the screen in the movie Adaptation, has turned her attention to writing about a 1986 fire at the Los Angeles Public Library.  Ultimately, 400,000 books were destroyed and the crime was never solved.

Orlean’s new book does not yet have a title or announced publication date, so while you’re waiting for her new book, take the time to explore her other books.  Orlean is a very good writer and her subject matter tends to be quirky and oh-so-interesting.

Among the Susan Orlean books at the BSC Library are:

The Bullfighter Checks Her Makeup: My Encounters with Extraordinary People

My Kind of Place: Travel Stories from a Woman Who’s Been Everywhere

Rin Tin Tin: the Life and the Legend

Saturday Night
