Librarians as authors

So many of us in the library field find our way there through a love of literature… but did you realize that many people who have worked in libraries are also well-known authors?

Some of us use Abe Books, the new-and-used bookselling website, to track down copies of things we would like to purchase that may no longer be in print, and they put out a very interesting reading list newsletter. A recent edition listed “Literature by Librarians” ranging from Giacomo Casanova (yes, the great lover) to Beverly Cleary, Jorge Luis Borges to Anne Tyler. If you’re curious, check it out!
