For L.A.-based Narnia Fans...

If you think "Narnia!" every time you find yourself on a tree-lined path, then come on down to the Los Angeles Public Library's Central Library to see Laura Miller talk about her book The Magician's Book: a Skeptic's Adventures in Narnia with David Ulin of the Los Angeles Times.

Wednesday, December 10 at 7 pm.

Part of the Aloud series, funded by the Library Foundation of Los Angeles, admission is free but reservations are recommended.

I'll be there with bells on!

  1. Yes, book inspecting is an important event. LAPL is fortunate to have the children book service in your capable and professional hands.
    A few years back I had the opportunity to work in the rare book room. Books on every subject were stored on shelves in variety of conditions. There were books on French art, German philosophy ,British literature , and Japanese drawings, etc. Next to a freshly purchased cd holder was a book lying pages open face down. Of all the choice subjects available , it is still the aroma of this slim foxed ( water vapor spots on the pages edges) volume of Italian poetry that haunts my memory. Some material though physical evoke a spiritual response though the senses. I am still feel honored to have spent time there - It is good to know such beauty is in the world.
    I hope to be there.
