  • Overview

    To kick off the 2019 season, AViD presents Susan Orlean at the DSM Book Festival. She is the author of the critically acclaimed 2018 best-seller, 'The Library Book,' a love letter to libraries that doubles as a true crime exploration of the massive unsolved 1986 fire that damaged the Los Angeles Public Library. Reese Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine Book Club selected the book as its first 2019 read. Orlean’s 1998 nonfiction classic, 'The Orchid Thief,' was adapted into the Academy Award-winning feature film, 'Adaptation,' starring Meryl Streep as the author.
