About this event:
Please join us at the Mayfair Branch as we discuss Double Fold: Libraries and the Assault on Paper by Nicholson Baker.
Nicholson Baker (“America's most radically original fiction writer since – who?” – The New York Times) loves nothing more than thumbing through the bound periodicals of a bygone era at his local public library. Imagine his dismay upon discovering that they’re headed for a landfill!
With characteristic obsessive zeal, painstaking research, and a meticulous prose style, Baker embarks upon a passionate crusade for the preservation of paper sources, upending 50 years of preservation practices, and dismantling the arguarguments of industry insiders.
