Susan Orlean’s Next; THE LIBRARY BOOK

Susan OrleanAuthor of The Orchid Thief and Rin Tin Tin, Susan Orlean, has signed a deal to publish The Library Book, described on Publishers Marketplace as, “a love letter to an endangered institution, exploring their history, their people, their meaning, and their future as they adapt and redefine themselves in a digital world, told through the lens of the author’s quest to solve a crime that has gone unsolved since it was carried out in 1986: who set fire to the Los Angeles Public Library, ultimately destroying 400,000 books, and why?”

It will be published by Simon & Schuster. There’s no word on expected publication date.
