The Future of the Library Card
The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books happens this weekend! We love strolling the grounds learning about new books, meeting likeminded readers, and seeing authors reading, signing, and circulating. If you’re in the area, we highly recommend stopping by.
Here’s what’s happening in the literary universe this week.
Lena Dunham is starting a new imprint with Random House! She plans to publish books she hopes to see “sticking out of purses and riding public transportation everywhere”.
If you love your library card as much as we do, you must read this fascinating look at their uncertain future from The Atlantic.
And if you’ve ever wondered how to get prisoners to read, here is the answer. Build a library like this one.
We teamed up with BookStar Daily to offer one lucky reader a $10 Amazon gift card and 3 ebooks!
Until next week, happy reading!
