xviii, 486 pp. "Toth ( Blooming ) and Coughlan, "an ardent library supporter," here assemble a diverting anthology of essays, stories, poems, memoirs and excerpts from novels, each in celebration of a great institution all too often taken for granted: the public library. In works by Eudora Welty, Edith Wharton, E. B. White, Isaac Asimov, Alfred Kazin, Philip Roth and dozens of other notable American writers, we read of libraries large and small, their librarians and the readers, young and old, who use them. The pieces are alternately serious, humorous, fanciful, philosophical, but all are permeated with admiration for this wonderful institution. Among the most delightful selections are those that recall the enchantment children feel when they first discover the library. The book is a fitting paean to the magic of reading rooms everywhere."Keywords: SUSAN ALLEN TOTH JOHN COUGHLAN DANIEL BOORSTIN READING ROOMS AMERICA'S FOREMOST WRITERS CELEBRATE OUR PUBLIC LIBRARIES WITH STORIES MEMOIRS ESSAYS POEMS LIBRARY POETRY BIOGRAPHY LITERARY CRITICISM LITERATURE EUDORA WELTY EDITH WHARTON ISAAC ASIMOV JAMES BALDWIN EB E B WHITE SINCLAIR LEWIS RICHARD WRIGHT STEPHEN KING ALFRED KAZIN ANNIE DILLARD NIKKI GIOVANNI AMY TAN First edition.
