CAMARILLO—Journalist and bestselling author Susan Orlean comes to California State University Channel Islands’ Grand Salon from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, November 2, 2019, to talk about The Library Book. This special event is a part of the Ventura County Library’s second annual One County, One Book community reading program. During this event, Orlean discusses The Library Book in a session followed by a Q&A moderated by Stacie N. Galang, Editor and Content Coach with the Ventura County Star. A book signing follows, with copies available for purchase.

This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities (visit www.calhum.org). This author event is also supported through a primary sponsorship from California State University Channel Islands (CSUCI), and additional sponsorships from a host of other organizations including California Lutheran University, Ventura College, the Museum of Ventura County, the Museum of Ventura County’s Docent Volunteer Council, the Camarillo Public Library, the Calabasas Library, the Ventura Friends of the Library, the Ojai Valley Library Friends & Foundation, and the Ventura County Library Foundation. Seating for this event is on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets are not required, but please RSVP.

One County, One Book aims to unite the Ventura County community around a common narrative, spreading interest in and facilitating discussions about the selected book. The Library Book chronicles the 1986 Los Angeles Public Library fire and its aftermath to showcase the larger, crucial role that libraries play in our lives. Orlean delves into the evolution of libraries across the country and around the world, from their humble beginnings as a metropolitan charitable initiative to their current status as a cornerstone of national identity.
