Kyle Cassidy, author of This is What a Librarian Looks Like

| E:128

On today's episode, Adam & Jill are joined by Kyle Cassidy, author of This is What a Librarian Looks Like. The trio celebrate this week's American Librarian Association annual meetings by discussing all the amazing library stories Kyle has in his book. In This is What a Librarian Looks Like, Kyle not only shares hundreds of wonderful stories by librarians but also several essays and interviews from bestselling authors including Neil Gaiman, Paula Poundstone and George R.R. Martin.

As Kyle states in the episode, "Every author I spoke to had stories about librarians because they all grew up in libraries. They wouldn't be who they are today If it wasn't for libraries."
