Caitlin Moran, New York Times bestselling author of How to Be a Woman and Moranthology, has been called "The UK's answer to Tina Fey, Chelsea Handler, and Lena Dunham all rolled into one" by Marie Claire. After her impassioned defense of libraries as seen in the video below, she is also officially a shining star near and dear to the LLF team's heart. She directly confronts moves within the UK to drastically reduce the number of libraries and their staff and beautifully imparts the distinction between the value of the internet and the value of conscious, educated advice as only a librarian can impart.
“If the library is…the
world in miniature, then a good
librarian is its map.”
Moranifesto, her latest collection of award-winning London Times columns, packaged with all-new original pieces, goes on sale November 29th. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll laugh some more, and you'll walk away with irreplaceable insights on everything from Daft Punk to UTIs. Get the egalley from Edelweiss here.
