Before Jennifer Egan, Louise Erdrich, Luis Alberto Urrea, and Jonathan Lethem became revered authors, they were readers. In their ebullient new book, THE WRITER’S LIBRARY (HarperOne), America’s favorite librarian Nancy Pearl and noted playwright Jeff Schwager interview a diverse range of America's most notable and influential writers about the books that shaped them and inspired them to leave their own literary mark. THE WRITER’S LIBRARY is a revelatory exploration of the studies, libraries, and bookstores of today’s favorite authors (including Donna Tartt, Viet Thanh Nguyen, Andrew Sean Greer, Laila Lalami, and Michael Chabon) — the creative artists whose imagination and sublime talent make America's literary scene the wonderful, dynamic world it is. A love letter to books and a celebration of wordsmiths, THE WRITER’S LIBRARY is a treasure for anyone who has been moved by the written word. Pearl and Schwager will be joined in conversation by contributor Laurie Frankel, author of This Is How It Always Is.
