Roz Warren in conversation with Marion Winik: Just Another Day at Your Local Public Library: An Insider’s Tales of Library Life

Enoch Pratt Free Library

Library humorist Roz Warren, author of the popular Our Bodies, Our Shelves: A Collection of Library Humor, is back with a new book about the joys and challenges of library life. In twenty-six entertaining essays, you’ll meet librarians looking for love, coping with challenging patrons, dreaming impossible dreams, finding amazing surprises in the book drop, and saving lives. The most closely guarded library secrets will be revealed.

Roz Warren works at the Bala Cynwyd Library in suburban Philadelphia. She also writes, often about library work, for The New York Times, The Funny Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Christian Science Monitor, The Jewish Forward, Reader’s Digest and The Huffington Post. Roz has appeared on both The Today Show and Morning Edition. She’s the editor of the ground-breaking Women’s Glib women’s humor collections, including titles like The Best Contemporary Women’s Humor, Men Are From Detroit, Women Are From Paris and When Cats Talk Back. She is also the curator of the “Library Laughs” Facebook page. Just Another Day at Your Local Public Library is her fourteenth humor book.

Roz Warren will be in conversation with Marion Winik, author of First Comes Love, The Glen Rock Book of the Dead and seven other books. Her Bohemian Rhapsody column at BaltimoreFishbowl.com has received the "Best Column" and "Best Humorist" awards from Baltimore Magazine, and her essays have been published in The New York Times Magazine, The Sun and many other publications. She is a professor in the MFA program at the University of Baltimore, and hosts “The Weekly Reader” on WYPR.
