Uniform titles


Éilís Ní Dhuibhne, librarian and writer, has a review of The Library at Night by Alberto Manguel in today’s Irish Times.

Mirroring what an eclectic, beautiful library is like, this volume assembles its reflections in a systematic way, under 15 uniform titles, ranked up like handsome spines, all in a row: The Library as Myth, The Library as Imagination, The Library as Identity, etc. Topics range from an account of the great library at Alexandria (The Library as Myth) to a discussion of the Google book project (The Library as Space), from a consideration of catalogues (The Library as Order) to history of book burnings (The Library as Shadow).

See that mention of ‘uniform titles’ connecting to librarian readers 😉

I was excited to discover the graphic novel Smile by Raina Telgemeier. The subject matter has strong personal resonances for me.
