In this special Library Love edition of This is the Author, we hear from beloved authors who share their fondest library memories, and why their library means so very much to them. Listen to Erik Larson, Gail Caldwell, Anne Applebaum, Maria Konnikova, Rick Hanson, Karla Cornejo Villavicencio, and Andy Boyle as they share anecdotes about their experiences as children within the library space, as well as stories about how they work and find inspiration in the library.
