Just one of the best books I have read in quite a while...I wondered why I have never heard of this fire, being a supporter of libraries, then realized it was overshadowed by Chernobyl...
The writing is excellent, the details explored are amazing and the work done by the staff and the public to heal this tragedy is inspiring.
I know if you use this service to review your reading, you are a real fan of libraries, and I urge you to get on the waiting list and enjoy the read. It will be worth the wait.
I feel I did not say enough about the history and the stories of the librarians that founded the LA Library...from very competent people to colorful "characters" it all a vital aspect of the Library.
