An Evening with Susan Orlean

October 22, 2018, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The library is collaborating with Grounds for Sculpture to bring acclaimed author Susan Orlean to the area. Hailed as a “national treasure” by the Washington Post, Orlean has been a staff writer at The New Yorker since 1992 and is the author of seven books, including “Rin Tin Tin” and “The Orchid Thief.” Orlean’s most recent work, “The Library Book,” reopens the unsolved mystery of the most catastrophic library fire in American history, the April 1986 blaze that destroyed 400,000 volumes at the Los Angeles Public Library.

Tickets are $35 and include park admission beginning at 4 p.m., plus a signed hardcover edition of “The Library Book.” All ticket holders are encouraged to arrive early and explore Grounds for Sculpture’s gardens and current exhibitions. A limited number of tickets for students and seniors will also be sold for $30.

Parking is free. You will collect your copy of “The Library Book” as you enter the event. Doors open at 7  p.m. with the talk starting at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets may be purchased via Eventbrite.

Co-sponsored by the library and Grounds for Sculpture.
